It’s time for another challenge, and this time it is all about patterned paper. Which is a great thing, because I love it, and seem to have quite the collection. Patterned paper and this fantastic stamp set from Winnie & Walter? Yes, please.
All of the papers here are from Lawn Fawn, I used one of the new Spruce woodgrain notecards, and the Hello Sunshine 6×6 paper pad. Stamped the gorgeous flowers from the Winnie & Walter “The Big The Bold & The Extras” stamp set. So many great uses for this set, I know I’ll use it time and time again.
To make my flowers, I stamped the solid flower image onto the patterned paper with versamark ink. Then clear embossed. Once that was cool, I used the outline flower image with versamark, and then white embossing powder. By the way, I use Hero Arts white and clear embossing powders. I just love them, they never disappoint.
Stamping onto the already embossed image is a little slippery, but I embraced this effect. I thought it was more watercolor – like, and didn’t mind if my hand slipped. Also, you can see in this next picture that when you emboss the white atop the clear, it kind of melts into the clear, and becomes what I’m calling “painterly”. I absolutely love it. Happy accident.
To make the leaves, I didn’t have any green paper. I didn’t let that stop me. I used Hero Arts Field Greens ink over some blue paper. Then I used the same stamp and versamark, so that I could clear emboss the leaves. Then the white, again, with the outline image. And you’ve got some pretty leaves. A little fussy cutting, some assembly, and all is done.
I know you’ve got a bunch of patterned paper in your stash, so please make sure to join us on this challenge. You could win a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp. Have you been following their Stamptember goings on? So much fun. Hide your wallet. Hide MY wallet.
