The new Crackle Backround stamp

Hi everyone and welcome to our blog today on this beautiful Thursday.  We are all sharing lots of ideas using the new release of stamps that you can find on the Queitfire blog here.   There are so many beautiful ones i had a hard time choosing but the new crackle stamp really caught my eye so i grabbed a handful of inks and set out to create something fun with it and 2 new other stamps.

Watercoloring is all the rage again so i thought i would try and use different colors and stamps to show the versatility of this new Crackle backround stamp and create a watercolor effect.  I used Tsukineko inks in green, yellow,  and orange to give it a bright and warm summer effect. And i made sure that I didn't press hard in the yellow area so that it would out more muted and was a better color to stamp the In Summer stamp in black.  I just used simple kraft cardstock and matted it and then adhered it to a white card with a little twine i had in my stash.  I really love this new crackle stamp and i hope you will get a chance to try one too.

For this one i used a whole different palette of colors and then matted it in some of the same bright solids to make it pop.  I wanted it to be a little glittery so i sprayed on some pixie dust in a spritzer bottle.  The stamp is from one of the brand new sets called "I don't tell you often enough" and it too has lots of other words to use that would be perfect on their own or with one of the new dies.

Here is a closeup of the crackle card and the stamp is below.  Imagine how much fun you can have with embossing powders or even use a little paint and stamp it on wood.  Guess that's another project i will have to do and share.. Oh and if you love the stamp---You can find it to order here.

Thanks so much for stopping over and have fun creating something beautiful today!!  Teresa
