Make the Most of Your Stamps with Layering Delicata

Make the Most of Your Stamps with Layering Delicata red blue green white pigment ink


The new colors of Delicata are simply amazing and if you want to use them for layer stamping, you will obtain shiny images with great texture. To create this beautiful butterfly card, I used only Delicata Ink with four of the new colors, a creative layout twist and a butterfly layering stamp set. I selected Crum Cake cardstock (or a kraft color cardstock) to enhance the radiant look of the ink and a tilt in the canvas.

I started with the lightest color in Delicata White Shimmer and the solid image of the stamp. This gave me a solid and brilliant base for the butterflies. Since pigment ink takes a little longer to dry, I set the color using a heat tool. Then I stamped the second layer of the butterflies image using the new color Delicata Pink Shimmer and set the color with heat tool as well. The last layer of the stamps was stamped with the darker colors of Delicata Ink in Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue, and Emerald Green and covered it with clear embossing powder to have a wonderful texture over each butterfly and take advantage of the pigment’s open dry time.

For the sentiment, I used one of the quotes of the stamp set Faith Quotes of Joy Clair stamped with Black Shimmer Delicata Ink. To finish, I titled the kraft paper over the card base, trimmed the edges to fit, and mounted the panel to the card base. This simple tilt of the card panel, the use of embossing and Delicata layering adds a bit of drama to an otherwise easy card! Thank you for visiting the blog and leave a comment below!
