Make it Simple Monday Seeet as a Peach

 Hello and welcome to the start of a weeks worth of inspiration from me Cary. I'm an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator here in the UK. And I'm  one half of  2 Big Girls Crafting.  This week I'm  going to be sharing with you some really summery projects that I've  made with the fabulous Sweet as a Peach Bundle

For today's Make it Simple Monday inspiration I'll be using just stamps, ink and paper. The stamps are the Sweet as a Peach ones pictured below.

These stamps are made from photopolymer which means that you can see through them!! This makes placement oh so easy! Which is great especially when you're just starting your stamping journey.

So for today's Make it Simple Monday card I've chosen to use the large peach image and kept the colours quite natural. 

My first sample uses just the beautiful pale papaya which is a fab shade of peachy orange for the peach 🍑 I stamped the stamp once then I reinked the stamp but I only inked the right hand edge of the stamp. Next I carefully lined the stamp up over my first image. 

The effect this has is to add even more texture and colour to the image. I then stamped the leaf and stem stamp in green. Placement is super easy because the stamps are clear. 

A few of the little flowers stamped in a pretty blue called balmy blue and a sentiment also stamped in blue and my project was finished.

Next I used another tequnique to colour my peach. This uses 2 colours  pale papaya and a darker peachy orange called calypso coral and a sponge dauber. A Sponge dauber is a little sponge in a finger holder.

I first inked the stamp with the paler colour. I then inked up a sponge dauber with the darker colour. I then gently dabbed the ink around the edges of the stamp. The effect gives you a two tone look to the stamped image that I think is very pretty.

I finished the card the same way as before.
