Both are done using the “Fishy Friends” stamp set … plus Julie had her own bubbles stamp that she added. You could use the little circle background stamp from “Itty Bitty Backgrounds” instead. The “happy birthday” stamp on the tag is no longer available (what a shame). But … don’t you love this Fishy Friends stamp set for watercolouring! And … how clever to use the rectangle frame stamp from “Frames with a Flourish” stamp set as a window frame! And … doing the cuts on the windows is really easy with a Paper Cutter. You won’t get the “holes” like you do when you use scissors!
Julie used a kaleidescope ink on the blue & white card to get the variegated colour … I wonder why SU! decided to retire these stamp pads? They do give a lovely effect! But … you can get a similar effect with your brayer … IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN HOW to get this variegated colour wash … WHY NOT JOIN ONE OF MY STAMP CLUBS??? This is a FREE CLASS where we learn heaps of great techniques … and you get to gradually build up your SU! products with just a small commitment each month to spend $50 on product!
