It's time for my weekly video series, It's In The Details, for the Waffle Flower Inspiration Team. Every week I will share a new video featuring amazing Waffle Flower Stamps and Dies.
Nuvo Crystal Drops are one of my favorite products for embellishing stamped images, as well as for adding enamel accents to a background. The new Pretty Wings Stamp Set is gorgeous for creating color layered stamped images.
The beautiful butterflies from the Pretty Wings Stamp Set were stamped in rainbow color with Waffle Flower Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, Daydreaming, and Happy Go Lucky Inks before being die cut with the coordinating Pretty Wings dies.
A background panel was die cut from watercolor cardstock using a Patched Layers Die. I pressed the same Waffle Flower Inks onto an acrylic block, spritzed them with water from a Mini Mister and then picked up the ink with a piece of clear packaging before “smooshing” the ink on the background panel. I repeated this with certain colors until I got the rainbow effect I was going for on the background.
Once dry, I stamped a greeting from the Pretty Wings Stamp Set using black ink, adhered the butterflies with a foam adhesive under the wings to give them the look of taking flight and then finished the design by adding detail to the butterfly wings and background with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Strawberry Coulis, Orange Marmalade, Dandelion Yellow, Key Lime, Sea Breeze, and Sweet Lilac. Creating swatches of the Nuvo Crystal Drops you have makes it easy to match the drops color with the Waffle Flower Ink colors in the design!
