Waterfront Stamp Set

I wanted to showcase this very fun and versatile stamp set before its no longer available.  The Waterfront stamp set can be used so many ways and I thought I would show you a few ways I used it recently for the design team I have been a part of.

My first example started out as an entirely monochromatic theme in shade of blue.  I used watercolor paper, and after sprinkling Prussian Blue Brusho Crystals directly on my stamp, I then spritzed water lightly onto my paper.  I then stamped the pre-brusho’ed stamps onto the damp paper and voila!  Here is an interesting tip…Prussian Blue Brusho and Dapper Denim ink are very close to the same shade of blue!  I did some shading and brush work with my Aqua Painter to get the watercolor effect and also used a sponge to deepen the colors around the edges.  I was going for a moody, snowy day look, but wanted to break up the monochromatic so added a touch of blushing bride to the sky and followed up with some backing paper that flattered that pink.  I then used the “snow” stamp to cover the entire image with snow using White Craft ink.  A little tag of vellum over the top, and the card was complete!

I will have more examples with this stamp set in the next few days.  Tell me what you think!!
