It’s great to be hopping with The Stamp Review Crew again! This week we are showcasing an old favourite, Papillon Potpourri. I think this set, along with its matching punches, must be one of the most popular stamp sets in the catalogue.
I tried to create a sample a little different to any I had seen so I jumped straight to my trusty watercolour. I also decided to add some drama with a long skinny card so to start, I trimmed some watercolour paper to size and then splashed on some water. I started dabbing on some Crushed Curry and then added one of my new favourites Flirty Flamingo. I wanted some more vibrancy so I ended up adding some Rose Red on top. I added a few little flicks of the paintbrush to create some splatter and then waited for the ink to dry.
I had a basic idea in my head of how I wanted it to look but I ended up experimenting with a few different papers, stamps and colours before I ended up with my finished project.
I hope you’ve been inspired to dust off this set and give it another inking. It really is a fun and pretty stamp set. For more inspiration, keep on hopping to visit the wonderfully talented Kelly Kent.
