Dream: By Trish

A summery, happy bright project from me today!

I stamped the butterflies onto vellum, then embossed with Bright White Embossing powder. I really love how the white stands out!

The butterflies were put to one side whilst I created the background. This was done by smearing and smudging yellow, green, blue and red paint onto a wooden panel. I also added my favourite detail, splattered dots! This was done by spritzing the whole background with water, then sprinkling a tiny pinch of Ultra High Ebony Black powder over it. The water creates just enough 'stick' so the granules don't get blown away when you point the heat gun at them! The water then, of course, simply dries away whilst you emboss!

Remember though, only spritz water onto your background if you have used some kind of permanent colour... I've used acrylic paint. Water based inks will bleed and run!
I used a wooden word as my finishing touch. This was coloured black, then embossed with Ebony Black powder to give the fab shine!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Wonderful tag, Trish, lovely colors and layers on background . Awesome embossed butterflies!

  2. Love the painty background... colours, layers stamping just beautiful and the vellum butterflies look fantastic too in white embossing.

  3. I love it! I've seen the vellum stamping before, but have yet to try it. But the butterflies are so pretty that way. Thanks for sharing that with us all. Have a nice rest of your day as well.
