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!
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!
