Sunday Stamping...

Happy Sunday,

A simple stamped project today using my daisy quit striplet stamp and the summer garden mica pigment set.

I stamped the triplet using perfect medium and brushed different colours form the mica set over the stamped area.  Once brushed off the mica sticks to the stamped area and adds colour and, in real life, a beautiful shine.

Next I cut the centre die form the bevelled glass triplet in a piece of blush card.  I added a panel of card covered in CE double sided adhesive sheet and brushed the same shades of mica over it.  I cut a matching aperture next to the die cut using the outline die form the set and foam mounted the stamped image behind.

A stamped sentiment, stamped in the same method with mica, form my diary chains clear stamp set was added to the front along with a heart dazzler and a blush coloured stain double bow.

  15. Eh up John
    I'm glad that the card is not showing up as blush as I'm not sure how that would sit with the blue of the mica.
    Beautiful design using your terrific stamp. Enjoy your demo day.
