Some Ideas for Using Big, Bold Word Stamps (Video)

Happy Friday! I recently played around with my beloved Winnie & Walter stamps and thought I'd make a video on how to create a watercolor/handwritten look with the stamps. Here are some ideas for using big, bold word stamps:


On the first card, I created a background with ombre hellos. Don't you love this look?
Here comes another card:


Here I used a very simple technique to create the colorful happy. And a last card:


Even simpler. I wanted to achieve the look of the words written with a fountain pen. Check out the video to see how I did it. And sorry for the blurry parts! And the stammering - I had to be quick with the cat hopping onto the keyboard and my girl playing next to me…


Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
