Pigment Craft Co. Frame Builder: Hello Beautiful


Hello!

I'm super excited about this brand new CANADIAN stamp company, Pigment Craft Co. !

I ordered a few items when the shop launched and my order arrived within a couple of days! Best part of all, no crossing fingers just hoping you won't get hit with duty.

The cards above are created with the Frame Builder: Hello Beautiful Stamp and Stencil Bundle and I'm kicking myself for not picking up the matching die too. 


The frame stamp stamps the leaves and sprigs, then you use the stencil to fill in the buds and blooms, adding details with the stamps from the set. 

This set coordinates with the Recipe Card Builder stamp set which is why it's open on the right side, to fit in the lines to create your recipe card. 

The sentiment is stamped and die cut with the Dashing Sentiments Stamp and Coordinating Die.



For this card I actually trimmed the frame stamp apart and stamped the separated pieces to create a full background panel. 

After inking with the stencil and stamping the details, I went back and added the light pink blooms to fill in the pattern a little more.

The sentiment is stamped on black card stock and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.




You can create a soft watercolour look very easily as well. To do this, I applied dye ink to the stamp, misted it with water and stamped on watercolour paper.

To do the stencil water colouring you'll apply the ink to a slick surface such as a glass mat or acrylic block, add a little water and then apply the colour to the stencil areas.

 Don't use too much water or it will seep under the stencil, apply it to the middle and gently draw it out towards the edges.



To add the details to the blooms I found the best results by painting the stamp with the watered-down ink so you still get the soft look but don't lose all the details.


This time I heat embossed the sentiment in gold embossing powder directly on the card front, a few black ink splatters and a hint of gold on the edges finish this card off.
