Amber Waves Sneak Peek


I was missing a good, fall thank you set. Happily, I got one in the mail a couple weeks ago! The other stamp set released this month for CAS-ual Fridays is Amber Waves.



The wheat image is a really great focal point stamp in this set. You can get more depth by varying the colors on the seeds of wheat by dabbing small ink pads on your stamp. Originally I had the red going on the stems, so I just went over them with a fine-tip brown marker after stamping.

The background edges are made with the grains of wheat stamped in alternating directions in shades of brown. It's a good way to make sure the background coordinates with the focal point : )

Please check out the other sneaks from the rest of the CAS-ual Fridays Design Team:
