Welcome to the debut release of Whimsy Stamps newest artist/illustrator Nina-Marie Trapani! Nina-Marie has created 4 new clear stamp sets and 2 new Shapeology crafting dies to complement the stamp sets. Each day this week our design team and special guests will be sharing the new products and then on Friday, March 11th customers will be able to purchase them from the Whimsy Stamps Shop.
I love the clean and simple look of no line watercoloring. I paired a greeting from the *Handmade From Me Stamp Set with the adorable critters from the *Hedgehugs Stamp Set, coloring the images with Distress Markers and a paintbrush dipped in water.
The rectangle was die cut from watercolor cardstock using a *Hand Stitched Rectangle Die. The greeting from the *Handmade From Me Stamp Set was stamped using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and the hedgehog and bird from the *Hedgehugs Stamp Set were stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
I watercolored the images with Distress Markers and a paintbrush dipped in water. The hedgehog uses Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso, Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge, Picked Raspberry, and Barn Door Distress Markers. The bird uses Cracked Pistachio, Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge, and Picked Raspberry Distress Markers.
"Grass" was created by applying Mowed Lawn Distress Marker to the scene with a paintbrush dipped in water.
Hearts from the * Handmade From Me Stamp Set were stamped using the Barn Door Distress Marker.
