Welcome to this weeks "3 ways with" post. Today I am featuring the Peaceful Reverie stamp set from Altenew.
The Peaceful Reverie stamp set was released this month and has become one of my all time favorite stamp sets! The set consists of 4 flowers and 2 leaves, each image has a solid base layer and then a detailed layer, this layer is designed in a pointillism style.
It can be used in so many ways to create stunning projects. Here I show you 3 ways, using the base layer alone, the detailed layer and then both layers together.
For the card below I decided to start out with the base layer, using solid images and tones of beige and brown. I added a vase using the Versatile vases stamp set and the matching mask/stencil. I sponge ink through the stencil to create an ombre effect, I think it looks like frosted/smokey glass. I then stamped the vase over this.
To add the stamped flowers and leaves I cut some masks to allow me to layer my design up. I decided that I wanted the darker images in the foreground and the leaves lighter behind. On the 2 main flowers int he front I used a brown pencil define the petal a little. I also added some inky splatters with Brown ink and the Crisp white ink spary.
For my next card I worked on Neenah dessert storm card stock and used just one ink colour for stamping. I love how delicate the detailed layer of the images looks by itself. It's such a soft, feminie look.
I added a sentiment from the Versatile Vases stamp set and some inky splatter with the Crisp white ink spray. As I wanted the splatters to be small and not overpower the card, I unscrew the cap from the ink and tap the plastic tube onto my glass cutting mat and then use a tiny paint brush to create the splatter.
My final card uses both layers for the floral images, showing the detail and shading of the flowers. I started by stamping the base layers of the flowers in Vanilla Cream ink before adding the detailed layer in Almond Butter ink.
I stamped the leaves using the Almond butter ink to tie the whole look together. This card has a real vintage feel so I wanted to keep it simple and add only a tiny amount of ink splatter an a simple sentiment, again from the Versatile Vases stamp set.
