Hello everyone, it's Zinia here. Today I'd like to share with you a couple of different ideas using the new Peaceful Reverie Stamp Set.
This is definitely a very unique design, featuring a mix of solid images and dotted details so you can either use them on their own or combine them for a layered result.
To showcase these different ideas, I created something I absolutely adore – bookmarks! Of course, you can recreate these on a larger scale and turn them into card panels or use them as patterned paper on a scrapbook layout.
For my first technique, I'm using the Peaceful Reverie Mask Stencil. I stuck the small pieces on my bookmark to mask off the areas I want to stamp the flowers and then I did some ink blending on the background. The colors I used were Bamboo, Fresh Lemon, and Rubellite Inks.
After that, I used the dotted images and stamped them in the masked areas in the same colors as the ink blending around them.
For the second bookmark, I only used solid images from the stamp set. I picked some reds and pinks to stamp my flowers and also added a few leaves in Volcano Lake. To achieve a more organic look for the pattern, you should start the design outside the border of the paper and move from one edge to the other.
Last but not least, I did another ink blended bookmark. This time I did the ink blending part in the whole background. Then used the same ink colors to add a light impression of the dotted images on top of it.
To finish my bookmarks, I used the Sentiment Strips Stamp Set to add little messages at the top.
