Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine and Waffle Flower Crafts are doing a collaboration this month, and I am so excited about it. I was sent the adorable Enveloper Little Birdie Stamp Set, and I loved using it. Upon looking at some of their other sets, and I now have a nice sized wish list going of sets I would love to add to my collection. I decided to make a layout with the Little Birdie set, because it reminded me of the matching Marimekko dresses that my daughter and I have. This layout also works for the Imagine Color of the Month, which is Pineapple.
The flowers on the dresses are very flat and only use one color. So after I stamped my images on to white cardstock with VersaFine ink in Majestic Blue, I used Memento Markers that are similar in colors to those on the dresses. And it took everything I have inside of me to NOT shade the flowers! I love to shade and blend when I color, but I really wanted to stay true to the fabric and keep the colors flat.
I created a mat around the white cardstock with Banana Pepper cardstock from My Colors, and I stamped my sentiment down the side with Habanero VersaFine ink. I also wrote in the date my photos were taken with my Danube Blue Memento Marker. My blue base cardstock was looking a little too plain, so I sprayed it with New Sprout Fireworks! Spray and used my On Point Glue to add white sequins.
I’m really happy with how well the stamped images from Waffle Flower went with our dresses. I think the stamps showcased the photos perfectly, and my daughter and I now have a fun layout to remind us of when we bought our matching outfits. A big thank you to Waffle Flower Crafts for sharing your wonderful stamps with the Imagine AIRS! And thank you for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
