Layered Waves and a video! I don’t mind if I do! Welcome to The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release blog hop. You should have arrived to me by way of Tae Eun Yoo. The Ton has 24 new stamps for their new Summer 2017 Release, which includes up to four free gifts with purchases. All products are available NOW!
When I saw the Waves stamp set from The Ton Stamps, I about fell off my chair! Well, I probably WOULD have fallen off my chair had I not been sitting on the floor! It’s brilliant, unique and a flat out a must have! For me, it’s just about all I needed to create a unique card set!
I first sat down, and started stamping with them the traditional way, in the three layer process. Then I thought, why not try and create a watercolored scene with it! So allow me to introduce to you “a wave caught in a storm” – 🙂 I made the one on the bottom first and then thought I’d try and recreate it on video!
You can watch the video right here on the blog or over on my youtube channel in HD by clicking HERE!

Now let’s take a look at the other cards I made stamping the layered waves the traditional way, stamping each layer one by one. I used distress inks for this but added a bit of texture to that third layer.
For the third layer, I stamped it with GESSO! I did this because it really gives that layer some texture and dimension and brings that final layer to life! I simply brushed on some white gesso with a paint brush, stamped and let it dry! I immediately cleaned off my stamp and brush by running it under warm water, not allowing time for the gesso to dry on my stamp. See the texture on that third layer? Down there towards the bottom? Nom Nom….. I am loving that.
And a look at all the cards I created using the Waves stamp. I really couldn’t put this stamp down. My parents are here visiting and my mom went thru all of my cards and took all of my wave cards (except for the Father’s Day one because that’s for my Daddy). The sentiments used on the cards are from the Penned Sentiments stamp set.
