Dragonfly for Summer

Wish I could get the colors right. The shimmer paste just does not show up true. Started by stamping dragonfly on white cs tag with black ink that got heat set in clear embossing powder. Then used markers in two shades of green to color and sponged edges of tag with green ink. Using a circle stencil and stencil butter in a shimmer green added bg to cs base then mounted image with fun foam. Sentiment was Silhouette cut for both top layer and mat layer. Mat layer was sponged with same green ink on edge of tag and top layer got stencil brush in the green stencil butter. Once dry they were attached then mounted on white cs base.

Interesting Technique

I had made the base of this bg piece long ago and came across it looking for something else. It is red and green stencil butters smeared on glass mat and picked up onto a piece of white text paper vellum and it was then dry embossed. That is what was in my stash, and then I remembered THIS technique and colored in the bg with a black sharpie. The top is then smeared with clear ink and I heat set a shimmery gold embossing powder. After adding white acrylic paint splatters it was mounted on a mini slimline white cs base. The round tags were Silhouette cut in white cs and vellum. Stamped sentiment and greenery in black ink and mounted on gold bling strip.

Blue It Is

I had stamped this image in dark blue and added the sponged clouds in turquoise and it just sat there. Today I added it to a soft gray cs that has dry embossing with white ink pad smeared across the raised image. Plaid pp is from my stash and all is mounted on white cs base. Tag is the trimmings from the embossed piece that has sentiment stamped in black. Ribbon is from stash. Once all combined I splattered with white acrylic paint.

Using a new embossing folder, I swiped ink directly to folder then dry embossed white cs. Used stencil brush and silver stencil butter to highlight ridges. Sentiment was cut on Silhouette in two layers. Base layer was colored with marker then added glossy accents to surface. While still wet I added the white top layer. This has a red mat layer on white cs base.

First Time to Use

I have had this stamp set for quite some time but this is the first to ink it up. After stamping with light green ink on white text vellum I used ink pads smooched on glass mat and a damp paint brush to water color then re-stamped with black ink. After fussy cutting I added clear ink and heat embossed chunky clear powder for that just rained on look. Sentiment tag was stamped then fussy cut and attached to bouquet stems. BG pieces are white cs with argyle stencil for the top piece and white water proof sticker paper used to mop up the ink colors on the glass mat for the lower portion. Love how the water proof properties of this product created such movement with the inks and especially that it was a scrap that was just laying around and I only wanted to mop up the mess. The white Silhouette cut detail strip was layered behind the flowers and they whole thing has a pink mat layer that is on white cs base.
