I really love the challenge of designing cards for Stamp-a-Stacks...finding a design that is both simple enough to mass produce and yet still has some 'wow' factor can be quite tricky. I don't always manage to pull it off, but after I made this set of cards, I was happy with them (and that's a rare occurrence, believe me!)
I like the large amount of white space, and then the delicate touches of colour. It's nice to know that a line-art stamp set doesn't always require a lot of water colouring. I applied my colour with a blender pen and just a touch of ink. I've used DSP from the 12x12 Patterns Stacks, all in Subtles Colours. The Basic Grey compliments it nicely, without being too harsh. I also used Confetti White cardstock. Not only is it easier to watercolour, but it is also a little sturdier than Whisper White for a base card and it is also not as stark, with pretty flecks in it.
