Generation Stamping with a Twist

Did you see the PTI MIM video by Dawn? You stamp a lined image multiple times & with 2 or 3 inks.  As she said, it almost gives a watercolor look.  I didn't have a PTI flower image that worked, so I used this butterfly from Quilled Elegance.  My inks are Memento Love Letter & Lilac Posies.  A little heart sticker was added to the bodies & the sentiment is by A Muse.  
I've had a lot of problems leaving blog comments lately & will have to head to Staples if this doesn't resolve soon. Hope you have something fun this week--I do tomorrow!

What a cool effect. Those butterflies almost have a neon glow in the best possible way. Lovely card Greta.

Gorgeous Greta. I watched the video the other day, but couldn't think of what stamps to use as I don't have any PTI stamps at all.

I must watch that video!! I really love the effect you achieved here- it is a bit like watercolor!! I hope your computer issues resolve soon- I know firsthand how annoying they can be:(

Beautiful!! Very interesting technique. I am well acquainted with the geeks at Staples! I, too, need to make another trip ... it's so frustrating.

Very intriguing design on this pretty card. I will check out this video and thanks for providing the link. I think blogger is misbehaving so may not be your computer having a problem. Thanks for your visit & hugs. Have a grand week.

Such sweet butterflies, Greta, and the colour combinations 'work' beautifully! The embossing and scalloped borders add the 'something extra' that's just wonderful. Delightful! As for your blogger issues...yes, whatever the affliction, it seems contagious. Grrr...hope you can get it resolved. Hugs~c

Greta, I had time to view the linked video and enjoyed it. Dawn's card was very pretty, but I do think I like yours better. I liked your flowers being the same color across the card, and especially liked the airy border trim treatment. TFS

I love the effect! Also like how you used the border punch. I need to dust mine off and use them again.

Shirley said...

First, so I don't forget, let me know what problems with leaving comments you are having. I might know what to do to fix it. Next, I love what you did to get your butterfly image. It honestly looks embossed and raised to me. How beautiful! The whole card is wonderful!!

Love what you did Greta! Your generational stamped butterflies are gorgeous, and the punched border makes your card so elegant! I love it? tfs

Jessi Fogan said...

It really does give a watercolour effect - so neat!
I've heard a number of people saying they've had trouble with Blogger in all sorts of ways lately - I hope they figure out what the glitch is soon!
