Sentiment Accents – Stamptember 2018

I’m continuing to work through the Spiritual Sentiments Stamp Set released by Simon Says Stamp exclusively for STAMPtember. This set has so many encouraging messages that you’ll love!

Hand-drawn lines make the sentiment a focal point

I loved the message & narrow, vertical orientation of this sentiment. So, I wanted to accent it with some hand-drawn stripes. Let’s get started.

I inked up the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. Once the sentiment was stamped I started drawing stripes with a t-square ruler and Sakura Pigma Micron 01 pen. I masked the stripes and stamped 3 monstera leaves from Simon Say Stamp Tropical Leaves Stamp Set. 

I added black splatter with Altenew Jet Black Ink Spray and flat clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for accent. After embellishing I still felt the card was flat, so I decided to add drop shadows to the stripes and leaves with W1, W3, W5, W7, & 0 markers.

At first, I wasn’t sure if I had gone too far with the Copic shading, but I think it turned out to be just enough. I love the graphic feel to this card while still staying Clean & Simple.
