rose and poppy
The first also uses another favourite, brusho powders.
The image from harlequin rose was stamped with black versafine and clear embossed onto 300gsm white card.
A quick spray with water, then I added yellow, orange and green powders using the dinky plastic spoons that were on the Chocolate Baroque website last year - I hope they will be back at some point, as I would like another set!
Another spritz with water, this time very generously so that the colours spread out around the stamp.
Once it was thoroughly dry, I trimmed the image down, matted it onto black card and then onto a white 5"x7" card blank. It took far longer to dry the image than anything else, Ididn't want to use a heat gun as I liked the spread of colour as it was.
pretty poppies and a sentiment from mackintosh sentiments.
The poppy was stamped with black versafine and clear embossed, then sponged with distress inks - even quicker!
I love the clear sentiment stamps, it is so much easier to get the sentiment stamped where you want it!
