Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features What I Love from the Sale-a-bration catalog which runs from January 5-March 31, 2016. For every $50 you spend on stamping supplies, you will receive a free item from this special catalog.
Even though this is a three step stamping set, I wanted to review a few techniques. This card is an embossing resist technique. I started with white shimmer paper, stamped with Versa Mark ink, and embossed with white embossing powder. It can be difficult to see, if you tilt your card in the light will help.
After the embossing is done, I started to color with my sponge daubers. I started with the center of the flowers. I used Cajun Craze in the very center, then Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight. I also sponged Daffodil Delight all over the card so it wouldn’t be stark white. I sponged the leaves with Old Olive ink. Don’t worry if you go outside the lines on this card. It is fine.
Finally, I took a tissue to the top of the embossing, This wipes off any extra ink, and really helps the white embossing pop.
I put a dab of my white craft ink refill on my silicone pad. I added a few drops of water to mix in with it. I used my aqua painter to fill in the flowers. I used a tissue to dab my paint as I went. I didn’t want my paper to get too wet. Once I finished painting my flowers, I thought the leaf stems really stood out. I traced around think leaves with the aqua painter. I stamped a verse in the middle with white craft ink and embossed it in clear. I mounted it onto a Blushing Bride base.
