So when I got home I pulled out some of my Hero Arts negative stamps and decided on the Flower Bird Garden stamp to use as my mold.
Here's how it turned out....
Isn't it stunning! I was so pleased with the result. I trimmed around the molding and then using some Liquid Pearls "white opal" and water painted the raised parts for a shimmery shine. I decided to make a Window card with the panel, by framing it with Spellbinders die-cut window. I sponged the frame with Antique Linen and stamped the Envelope pattern in the same ink. My base is a little smaller than a normal card (something to do with not watching the size when I cut the A4 set up!) I dry embossed the base with CB folder ~ Birds and Swirls~ The green edging was made with a Martha Steward die following the instructions in this tutorial. Then just added some paper flowers in creams and a pearl centre. I'm entering this into Wee Memories current challenge ~ no patterned paper~ as well as Hero Arts ~ window card~
Went out yesterday to get some adhesive ~ but the store didn't have any of the one of I wanted left! The customer in front of me took the last one... so just had to have a look around and lo and behold.... 3 distress stains jumped into my basket! A pink, green and blue to add to the white I already have. Oh and a new Hero Arts stamp - Merriest Christmas Wishes fell in too... so fun for me over the next few days.
Hope your week is going a well as mine... Spoke with my daughter at lunch time... I do miss her and it's great to have a quick chat every now and then.
Edited: thanks Betty for locating a Hero Arts link to this technique.... HERE
