|The final product :)|
To create this stamp I started with a 5.5" x 8.5" piece of black cardstock that I folded in half. I also cut a white rectangle 5"x 4" to use on the inside to write my note. Gel pens would have also worked well on the black paper, but I wanted something that I could remove in case I messed up.
The next step was to emboss the flowers on the card. I used a flower stamp from the Watercolor Garden set and Versamark Ink. I worked one color at a time randomly placing the flowers all over the front of the card. Once all the flowers were stamped and embossed, I stamped the center of the flowers with versamark ink and used a glitter embossing powder.
Hint: Use an anti-static powder to help prevent stray embossing powder from sticking to random places it does not belong. I also like using a dry paint brush to clean up the stray powder before heat embossing.
For the sentiment, I cut two fancy embellishments from black and white cardstock using my Sizzix machine. I stuck them together using double sided tape and stamped "Thank you" as well as a couple flowers for flair. I attached all of it to the card using some foam tape to add a little 3D effect.
|I really enjoy embossing now that I have more than two colors. And this was my first attempt at a black background with embossing. I really like how it turned out.|
Finally, I stamped a couple of flowers using a light pink colorbox ink that matched the pink embossing powder really well.
