Themed Thursday - Paris Clear Stamp Set

Happy Thursday to you all! Dana here today sharing a pair of artist trading cards that I created with the Paris Clear Stamp Set. If you're looking for some fun French-themed stamps that have a lot of great detail, this set is for you!

I started with a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped the images onto my paper using VersaFine ink, to capture all the fine details of the stamps. Next, I embossed the images with clear embossing powder by carefully stamping over the images again with VersaMark ink, sprinkling with clear embossing powder, and setting with heat. The clear embossing powder protected the stamped images while I added layers of color to the paper and also kept a small area around the image white, which helps the images pop from the background.

I added the script text to this card with the Background Writings Cling Stamp Set. I wanted a faint impression, so after inking the stamp, I pressed it onto another piece of paper to remove some of the ink before I stamped onto my card. I finished this card with a sentiment from the Paris Clear Stamp Set and a brad.

I added the script text to this card with the second stamp from the Background Writings Cling Stamp Set, using the same method as above for a faint impression. I used the decorative border stamp, also from the Paris Clear Stamp Set, along the bottom of this card. I finished this card with a sentiment from the Paris Clear Stamp Set, a flower and some ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I have inspired you today!  If you're interested in purchasing some of these fabulous stamps, visit the Paper Wings Productions Store to browse the full collection of stamps and kits.
