IndigoBlu Clematis Flourish 2 ways with Tupelo Designs LLC
Hey there! I have had this stamp hanging out in my studio for awhile and I figured it was time to try it out. I'll give you a bit of backstory on why I have two cards in this post instead of one. My first try was the green one on the left; I didn't like it. I stamped, colored and inked it but almost trashed it. I posted a picture of it to my favorite Facebook group, My Inky Oasis, and a bunch of the girls encouraged me to finish it as they loved it. So I added some yellow green inks to it, added a sentiment, some sequins (because sequins make everything better!) and finished it off with Wink of Stella Clear. At the point of trashing the first one, I stamped the second one and loved the softness of the gray ink, but my Copics had blurred the lines of the flowers, so I needed a way to add the detail back in. I've watched several of Kelly Latevola's videos and she outlines all of her images after stamping and coloring. So I tried the technique with the blooms and bird; loved it. I added some shadows and it made the flowers just jump off the panel. Finished it off with clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh and I had two finished cards. Here's the link to the video on my YouTube channel so you can see how I did things.
