Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Glorious Gatherings
When I headed over to the scrapbook store to pick up those Tim Holtz background stamps, I yielded to temptation and got this glorious stamp, Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz Glorious Gatherings. It’s THE largest stamp I own, and it comes with it’s own block, that’s how very large it is. However, it fits quite nicely in a standard MISTI so that is how I stamped it. This is what I colored on the second day of The 30-Day Coloring Challenge. Lookie:
GOJUS! I had to google “succulent bouquets” in order to try to figure out what colors some of these things in this bouquet might be. I didn’t realize succulent bouquets were a thing, but there were some really lovely examples that I found. I spent several hours coloring this bad boy, and then I had to make the agonizing decision of what to cut off to get this to fit.
On some of these flowers, I used white gel pen to lighten parts of the image to make them pop out more.
I laid in a background with warm and cool colors to help this image pop out from the background. Once I made the decision of where to die cut my rectangle, I stamped the greeting with some Plum Archival ink and added a few sequins to the background. It didn’t really need anything else.
I think if you wanted to, you could cut this image almost exactly in half horizontally and get two card fronts from it, but I decided I would cut it differently. I used a LOT of colors! It was fun! I think I will try some different colors next time I use the Glorious Gatherings stamp.
