Awesome is a word I love. Plus, because I am surrounded by such amazing people it’s a word I use a lot! When I saw the Marquee Messages stamp set I instantly fell in love and it is continues to be one of my favourites!
The Marquee Messages stamp set is two-step design.
This means you start with a base layer, the main image, and continue to add until you get the image you want! The stamps in this set are photopolymer, which means they are see-through so stamping the same piece of card to make an awesome project is much easier.
Did you know, it is normal for photopolymer stamps to discolour with use.
They react to light, and will turn a pink/red colour. This doesn’t affect your stamping – it just shows that it is a quality product. Not to mention, it actually makes them so much easier to find when you’ve put it down in the wrong place!
For this card I took inspiration from our ‘pop of pink’ suite and have concentrated on a black, white and pink theme – with Melon Mambo as the pink of choice. I used the washi tape from the range to draw your eye from the top left to the bottom right.
To create the main image, I stamped with our Basic Black Archival ink onto Whisper White card. I then used my water brush with a touch of Melon Mambo ink to colour the ‘you are’ words. By adding more colour to the bottom, I created an ombre effect. To make the arrow stand out, I stamped and fussy cut it from Melon Mambo card. Don’t you just love coordination. Attaching it with Stampin’ Dimensionals helps add to the awesome marquee effect.
