Following on from yesterday’s experimental creation I thought that I would try another make with the Cover A Card series of stamps from Impression Obsession.
The stamp design that I used for this creation is called Doodle Flowers and is from Impression Obsession.
I first stamped with a pastel lilac pigment ink and then applied clear embossing powder before heat setting.
I then used distress inks to cover the card in bright purples and deep blues. I spritzed this with water to spread the colour and allowed it to dry.
Using the heat gun again I re-heated the entire piece until the embossing powder started evaporating away in most areas, leaving just the finest areas of colour.
More distress ink was then used to deepen the hues of colour.
I set this aside to dry.
The dragonfly was then stamp out, coloured with distress ink markers, cut out and spritzed with Spray and Sparkle from Crafter’s Companion.
The flowers were created with a couple of paper punches and a few dazzle gems.
These were applied with Pinflair Glue gel.
I used a cropodile to create holes in the layers of cardstock and apply eyelets after which I threaded through some organze ribbon as a final decoration.
And hey presto – an ATC that I REALLY love – the colours, the technique and the final look – I really love it :)
