Adding Dimension to Stamped Images + Pretty Pink Posh Release Hop
Hi friends welcome to my stop in the Pretty Pink Posh August release blog hop! I have a set of beautiful thank you cards to share with you featuring the newest Pretty Pink Posh stamps, dies and sequins, as well as a fun technique on how to add dimension to your stamped images.
I love adding the look of dimension to elements on my cards to add a more realistic touch; I do it often and I think its a fabulous way to take a design to the next level! I wanted to use this technique with the new Blissful Butterflies stamp and die set from Pretty Pink Posh and create the effect of butterflies flying up and off of the card. I think the result turned out so pretty!
I used a handful of Copic markers to quickly add simple shading to the butterflies… I did not want them to be as detailed as I normally color my stamped images because I felt that there was already a lot going on in these cards. Adding fine detail shading would have been a bit more distracting. The clean shape of the butterflies also lends to the simple styled coloring.
To see how I created these cards from start to finish, be sure to check out the video below! If you enjoy, please give it a big thumbs up and subscribe to my YouTube channel for more weekly inspiration!
