Mix and Matching Stamps

Sometimes, you just want to mix and match stamp sets and that’s what I did. I used three sets of Gerda Steiner stamps: Moody Unicorn, Hippo with Butterly, Hoppiness. They work really well together.

Since the main card is focused on the different animals, I wanted to use a background that was colorful and fun. I’ve been really enjoying playing with distress oxide inks lately. Even though I don’t have many of them, I love how I was able to use three of them (Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Fossilized Amber) to create six different colors, essentially the rainbow! I sprinkled a bit of water and picked it up with a paper towel. And if that wasn’t enough, I wanted to add a little pizzazz so I used the gold color from the Finetec watercolor palette and sprinkled it over the background. It’s a bit hard to pick up in the pictures but you can see how subtly pretty it makes the background. I’m in love!

I really loved how this card turned out and I hope you all enjoyed it too. Have a great day!!!
