PTI MIM #232: Layered Stamping On Kraft

Dawn showed us how to to get bright, fun colors when stamping on Kraft card stock in this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday. I'm sorry I didn't find time earlier in the week to try this technique because I definitely need practice. I left too much white showing, but otherwise I kind of like it.

Starting with a white card base and a layer of Scarlet Jewel, I added my Kraft using SU Dimensionals and Ticket Corner Punch. My images were first stamped in White ink, allowing time for the pigment ink to dry. Then I stamped the leaves in Ripe Avocado, the berry branch in Scarlet Jewel and the pine bough in Raspberry Fizz. The cluster of berries was stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer. The sentiment from Deck The Halls was stamped in Scarlet Jewel ink. My final step was flicking some white watercolor over the Kraft for a light, snowy effect. Yay! I have another Christmas card done.
