Welcome to our new subscribers! Here's a photograph and another project by our fabulous Design Team:
|Heart Pots by Doris Stahl|
|Love Hearts by Emma Sims|
Emma says: The text background was used using the stamp from the set Call Me. The hearts were cut out of red card and stamped with Swirls andFlourishes stamp and then embossed with Gold Rich Wow! powder. Beads were threaded onto gold wire and wrapped around the hearts. The hearts were mounted with 3D tape to give dimension. The LOVE greeting was stamped with the Alphabet/Months set and embossed with Wow! Gold Powder.
Tip: I prefer to put the powder back in the pot and secure the lid before proceeding. I have knocked over my embossing powder pot several times!
Step 4: Heat set the powder with a heat gun. If you are using the heat gun for the first time, let it run for a few seconds to get it warmed up. Start from one corner and slowly melt the powder and move to the next spot.
Step 7: Once the flowers have been painted in, add a colourwash to the background. A colourwash is where a lot of colour is added to paint to give a softer look.
|Step 8: End result!|
I used the "with love" sentiment from the stamp set, stamped it with embossing ink, used Ebony Superfine over it and then set it with my heatgun. I used the solid flowers and randomly stamped with embossing ink all over the card base. I dusted Clear Sparkle embossing powder over the card and heat set it as well.
Adhere the watercoloured panel to the cardbase and add Victorian Velvet Distress Ink around the edges if desired.
