Thanks for popping in.
Lovely sunny day here in Kent.
How about where you are?
Yesterday’s blog with the custom ink pads was well received,
so how about another little floral offering, using the same technique, but adding another spin to it?
We have a very cool little pair of flowers, which are designed to work together, but which also work beautifully alone.
Mel designed them.
aptly entitled Bouquets
They are beautiful to work with.
You can see how one is the line art and one is the colour fill.
Or the glaze.
How do you do that then?
See how only the flowers are glazed?
Start with the line art stamp with a dark ink pad.
I used a dark green Archival ink here.
Let it dry completely.
While it’s drying, read back over yesterday’s blog so you understand how to colour the flowers.
Use the solid stamp, the silhouette stamp, to do that.
While the coloured ink is still wet, sprinkle Detail Clear powder over it. Tap off excess and heat emboss from behind for a lovely glaze.
When you know how.
Layers and layers of the solid stamp, the silhouette stamp,
in various matching ink pads.
Now there you need a stencil.
And just such a stencil do we have!
In fact, let’s have a little bloggy sale….
If you buy the bouquet stamps,
we’ll give you the vase stencil as a gift.
7″ x 7″ rrp £4.99
Free. Gratis. Um sonst. For nowt.
If you haven’t got these two flowers,
all I can say is – you don’t know what you’re missing!
Don’t forget to tune into HOCHANDA
