Group Hugs | Waffle Flower

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a card featuring Waffle Flower‘s stamp set named, Group Hug. I’ve always eyed this set because it’s a fun one to stamp and color up. Lately, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been really into no line coloring and enjoying it so much!

To start off, I use Ink on 3‘s Fadeout ink, which is an ink that is formulated specifically for no line coloring because it take on the color you lay on top of it. I love it!

This is definitely an easy card to make since the stamp image is so large. The set includes random accessories but I really just wanted to use the image in its original form.

Together with Copic markers, I colored this in. I definitely took my time with this one and took multiple breaks in between. No line coloring has been really challenging and also totally rewarding. I just love the finished product.

Once I finished coloring the image, I trimmed it down with a slight white border. On a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, I decided to use two distress oxide inks: Pickled Raspberries with Wilted Violet on the edges. It turned out to be so soft and pretty! To finish it off, I used a bit of metallic white watercolor to splatter on the background.

For the sentiment, I stamped the word “Hugs” directly onto my background and then heat embossed the rest of it using white embossing powder on black cardstock. I trimmed the embossed sentiments down to strips.

Since the image is so large, the only space I had was the top left corner (which I noticed is a popular chosen spot for most of the cards using this set).

I love how this turned out and am excited to see how many other ways I can use this set. It’s such a fun one to coloring and I can’t wait to ink it up again!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
