Gerberas Photo Stamp Ideas

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, July 03, 2019

Hi there! We have recently released a new series of Photo Stamps! Today we’d like to share some ideas and cards using the Gerberas Photo Stamp


As you can see, this is a beautifully detailed stamp which will look lovely stamped in different inks and colours. If you want the most details out of the stamp, we recommend stamping with permanent waterproof ink, such as Archival Ink (oil based). The image below shows the Gerberas stamped with Plum Archival Ink onto cream card stock. 

You can also create some beautiful watercolour effects with this stamp if you use a water-based ink pad, such as Distress Inks. In the image above, the Gerberas were stamped with Distress Oxide ink pads and then a water brush was used to move the inks around slightly to create a watercolour effect. It is an easy technique that produces some stunning results! Of course you can try lots of different colours too! 

Here’s a card by Rachel Greig using that watercolour technique: 

The other stamps used on this card include the Splatter and Marbling Background Stamps, Butterflies Stamp Set and a quote from the Art De Fleur Vol 2 Stamp Set

Here are a couple of cards by Godelieve Tijskens: 

This first card Godelieve stamped the Gerberas onto Kraft cardstock and coloured them in using coloured pencils. It’s a stunning effect! You can read the full tutorial here

In this card, Godelieve stamped the Gerberas with Wendy Vecchi ink pads and coloured in with Distress Oxide Inks. Read the full tutorial here.  

I hope you’ve enjoyed these ideas! If you’d like to see more ideas using Photo Stamps, please check out the Photo Stamps Pinterest Board. You can also find all of our Photo Stamps here.
