Background stamp is by Stamper's Anonymous.
The card above was designed as a gift set. A great idea, to have a set or two on hand for those unexpected times when you need a gift NOW! Leslie sent another card which also would make a great "Note Card" gift...but the colors were too subtle for the scanner.

..Daisies Rubber Stamps by gg designs. Posh sample by Linda Blackbird.

Technique? Simple, of course....that's the beauty of gg's! I rubbed pastel chalks into the cardstock using cotton balls. I stippled the ink onto the stamp, using Inkredible! (a pigment ink by Stewart Superior that I love.) I stippled Burnt Brass around the daisies and stippled Midnight Blue around the edges. Stippling added to the soft look. I trimmed it, and edged with a Krylon pen. I hit it with the heat gun to dry, then covered the entire piece with VersaMark and did 3 clear coats of UTEE. Done. After layering to gold and teal c.s., it was very pretty, all on its own....soft and muted. But, since I can't leave well enough alone, I added the wire and beads.     Linda

 

Another sample from Linda uses the lovely, soft, muted tones to convey a heartfelt message
IdaAbshier's click class provides many illustrations to make her luscious watercolor technique available to us all.
SAMPLES and CLASSES

SAMPLES, while not as complete as the classes, still help to generate ideas and clarify instructions. Most are pages which accompanied on-line classes presented through Cyberstampers (now closed).

CLICK CLASSES are step-by-step instructions with accompanying pictures to help make each step understandable and easy to follow. These are prepared by and shared with gg designs' customers.

gg designs owes a great debt of gratitude to those who have given so generously of their time to add their special expertise and share these "How-To"instructionss.

We hope you enjoy them.
