Ready for some inspiration?
First up, we have Beth Silaika's Karen Dolphin! I love the little heart and spray droplets you can use with the different creatures to really flesh out your scenes in a simple way. Here I masked the clouds with a sticky mask I made sponged with Ocean Mist and colored the whale and sea with Spectrum Noir markers. Heart die is from Gina's Double Stitched Circle set (Red Velvet cardstock). Cardstock is Turquoise Sea and White.
I loved stamping the scene with this spouting whale! I masked the clouds with the same mask from above with Ocean Mist and colored the whale and sea with Spectrum Noir markers. Patterned papers from the Petite Patterns designer paper in the new Sentimental Summer kit ( or for purchase separately) Card base is Innocent Pink.
For this one, I did a Black Onyx outline and anther, Innocent Pink base, Dusty Rose, accent and Passionate Pink spots n the center. The layered stamps make it so easy, and I love this combo! Just Google "lilies" for some fabulous color inspiration to create these beauties with the different pads you have. Leaves are Jellybean, Grass Green and Black Onyx.
Next we have Claire Brennan's Lovely Lilies!! Here I used the Innocent pink and Dusty Rose, without the addition of the third layer on the ends, but added the back outline. The little dots on the flowers are stamped in GKD Passionate Pink, love that detail I separate for solid or spotty lilies! These are so fun to layer, so many looks! Leave are stamped in GKD Jellybean and Grass Green.
This next card I stamped the lilies first in Wild Dandelion, then added Sweet Mango, then Red Velvet accents and spots, and finally Black Onyx for the anther. No outline this time, but I cut them out and popped them up over the leaves, which are stamped with GKD Grass Green and Fresh Asparagus. Cardstock is Pure Luxury Red Velvet, Wild Dandelion and White. More Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops!
This is such a gorgeous set! I haven't tried it yet, but I love that Claire provided the outline, so you can do your own coloring, with watercoloring, Prismas, etc also when you want to do something different than the two step filler stamps. :)
