For the Love of Stamping!

Hello and welcome to our CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop. This week our featured product is stamp sets.

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can find the complete list at the end of this post.   If you came here from Annette you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

I love the Shower Flowers stamp set for a solid floral image, perfect for this technique!

I started off by painting a piece of the Watercolour Paper in the Jeepers Creepers featured colours- Pansy, Willow, Raspberry, Tangerine, Lemon and Lagoon. In order to get a good match with the specified colours, I used the watercolour guide (available from your consultant).

I then stamped some flowers from Shower Flowers onto the dry piece of paper with Versamark ink, and heat set using clear embossing powder.

I then swiped the paper with clean water, removing any excess with a paper towel. This allows the colours to come through strongly where the embossing is, and leaves a lovely watercolour background for the rest of the panel.

Here is the finished card with a sentiment added stamped in black ink and matted on Lagoon cardstock. I also added some light grey sequins.

You can see how the shiny colours show through using this technique, and the possibilities are endless as you can use any solid stamp and any colour combination!

Thank you for checking out my project. If you would like to purchase our featured product of the week or any additional supplies you can buy them here.
