Hello, crafty friends! This is Enza, and today I’m sharing a new layout featuring the Watercolor Doodles Stamp Set.
I love the “messy”, offset look of these designs; I don’t have to worry about the layering too much and the results are always so pretty and delicate. Here I used the set to create my own background on white smooth cardstock.
Let’s look at my process!
I started by stamping the outlines in a diagonal on my paper; I varied the direction of each stamp to give it a flowy, natural look. Jet Black Crisp Dye Ink was used for this. For flowers and leaves, I combined Pink Diamond, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Eastern Sky, Warm Sunshine, Citrus Burst, Frayed Leaf, Fresh Leaf, Lime.
Once the background was ready, I matted my photo with plain cardstock in coordinating colors and used one of the patterned papers from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection as the last layer. I then adhered it down with foam tape, but not before tucking a few of the flowers and foliage from the Live Your Dream Clear Stickers sheet in between the layers. I also used one of the sentiments in the same collection as my title.
Since butterflies and flowers go so well together, I added three of the Watercolor Butterfly Cardstock Stickers along the diagonal design – that blue perfectly matches the colors in the photo!
I finished the layout with colorful splatters in coordinating colors using some of the same Crisp Dye Inks I stamped the flowers and leaves with.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have found some inspiration for your next scrapbook layout.
