InkyStamper: Trust Your Wings ATC & Announcement!

Hello! I am so excited to share the news that I've joined the InkStamper's Design Team for the rest of the year! YAY! Looking forward to sharing some fun stamp sets that my sweet friend, Chelsea Comer, will design.

To commemorate the occasion, I am showing off her Dragonfly Stamp Set in an ATC format. Let's get started!

**I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**

Trust Your Wings ATC Step Outs

Stamp the dragonfly image with black ink on a piece of white cardstock.

Place its matching die over the image, secure it with washi tape and die-cut.

Next, using a combination of Gelatos in Blueberry and Spearmint, paint the dragonfly's body with a watercolor brush and water.

Then use Gelatos in a combination of Bubble Gum, Metallic Melon, Lemon and Mango, to color the wings with the brush and water. I also used a watercolor pencil to outline and shade the dragonfly.

Designer's Tip: If the color goes over the line, use a white Gelly Roll Pen to cover the spots.

ATC Background

While the dragonfly is drying, let's work on the ATC background. Randomly add the Gelatos in Blueberry, Spearmint, Lemon, and Metallic Blueberry on the ATC. Use a piece of baby wipe to blend the colors until you get your desired look. Set aside.

ATC Details

Stamp the clouds with black ink on a piece of white cardstock.

Using a small pair of scissors, fussy cut the shapes. I used two clouds for this project. With my finger tip, I applied Glitterfic in Clear onto the clouds for some sparkle! Set aside to dry.

I chose the Trust Your Wings sentiment. Stamp it with black ink on white cardstock. Cut it into a strip with a fishtail on one end.

Secure the clouds and sentiment with the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong adhesives. It works well against a painted surface.

Lastly, add the dragonfly with 3D Foam Circles Black in Small Size to lift and adhere onto the ATC.

Another look...

As always, thanks for stopping in!
