A big splash with Whaley small stamps.

Hi everybody,

Jill here, and this week, I'm getting the most from those uber cute tiny stamps we all have that sometimes get over-looked...

Using Lawn Fawn's Whale You Be Mine, and Altenew's Tiny Bubbles.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, these wee little sets that Lawn Fawn come out with absolutely rock my world.  The price point is incredible (especially in our amazing store!), and they are always so so cute.  And now Altenew are joining the party and have released a few small stamps recently, I've used Tiny Bubbles here but they have Tiny Stars and Tiny Hearts also, all amazing for building up backgrounds etc.  Just brilliant.
I started by stamping out my lovely whales and the surrounding scene, including the sentiment which is from the same set, in Versamark and white heat embossing everything.  I knew I wanted to create an emboss resist background.  I then masked off my whales and the little heart using masking fluid, and went town with a big inky wash background.  once that was dry, I added a load of Altenew's Tiny Bubbles across my washed area, making sure to 'dab off' the ink form the edges of the stamp to give a softer finish.

I then added a flicker of darker blue ink, and a good splash of white to complete my background.  I removed the mask from my whales and heart, and coloured using Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens.
I finished with a slick of Glossy accents to make my scene stand off the page, and there you have it.

I really hope you like it and it makes you want to re-visit some of your smaller stamps that sometimes get lost amongst our vast collections :)

As always, everything I used is linked below so be sure to stop by the store.

See you next week.
