Howdy friends! Wow, what a weekend, the weather was glorious! I went to the pond today and blissfully floated in the water for an hour and then read for another hour on the beach, so nice! I like the hot weather, and we have had a very pleasant summer so far but the weather has not been really hot until this week. Yesterday I took a break from the sunshine and went down to my comfy cool studio and played with some stamps.
I am using the new(ish) layering stamps and inks from Altenew. They are a fairly new company that has become really popular because of their highly detailed, easy to use layering stamps. I have another project using the butterflies here in case you missed it. I find that these allow me to create really quick projects and they are really fun to use. The key is to use a couple of shades of the same color ink, if you do not have a great selection of ink I recommend “stamping off” your medium color to get a light shade as I demonstrated in this video.
