Thumping Texturz Thoughts & Prayers
Thumping is a fun technique that allows you to stamp an image with more than one color. Just remember to always ink your stamp with the lightest ink color first. I ‘thumped’ the floral flourish stamp in the Thoughts & Prayers set. First, I applied Certainly Celery to the stems, and thumped on Garden Green. I hold my marker on its side and tap the marker with my finger onto the stamp. Then, I colored the flowers with Pale Plum and the centers with Perfect Plum. I stamped these along the side of a Whisper White card base.
This is another color combo that I’ve been wanting to play with…Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Pale Plum and Perfect Plum. For me, they say “Springtime!” And, I am so ready for that! The Certainly Celery layer has the end Scallop Trim punched. The sentiment is found in the All Holidays set. I stamped it onto a Whisper White cs that I ran through the Big Shot using the lattice side of the Texturz Plate Perfect Details. Here is a detail shot:
I knotted a length of Celery grosgrain ribbon around the Celery layer. Topped it all off with a sprig from Little Leaves (again, through the Big Shot) and my double punched flowers. For that technique, check out this post, Double The Fun. The flowers were first Rock-N-Rolled in Pale Plum and Perfect Plum using the flower stamp in Best Wishes & More. A Vintage Pewter Brad completes the centers and they are adhered using Mini Glue Dots and Dimensionals.
I think this is a lovely card. I need some sympathy cards and I think I’ll use this exact card with a sympathy sentiment. Actually, this would be lovely for ANY occasion! I think I’ll try this in several different color combos. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ve been inspired to give your stamps a “thump”.
