It is blooms again....

Hello friends,

Gayatri here. You all would have checked out the amazing stamps released this month. Here I am with few projects from some of the stamps.

1. Negative coloring and embossing.

I lightly stamped  the image light grey ink and colored the outside with copic markers. I used three colors and blended to get a shaded look. Once the coloring had dried, stamped the image again and heat embossed it with Super Fine Gold embossing powder from Ranger. Mounted the panel with foam tape. Stamped the sentiment from 'Brushed' stamp with Memento black ink and added few enamel dots.

 and I ended up making two cards :)

2. Resist Embossing

I stamped the sentiment from 'Brushed' and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I used the curved brush image and stamped it with DI and Altenew Inks to get a multi colored background. Lightly buffed the embossed sentiment to remove ink on it. I stamped one of the images from 'Washi Tapes' with black memento ink to create a border on one side and mounted the panel on a white card stock. Added few enamel dots matching with the colors used.

3. Layered Stamping.

Stamped the image from 'Botanical Blooms' stamp following the layers given in the guide with Altenew inks. I lightly colored with grey zig color pens on the outside of the image for depth.
I stamped the sentiment from Purely Sentiments and added few enamel dots.

 Here is my last card ...

4. No line coloring

This is my favorite now. I have used the small outline flower from the Linen Blooms set.

I stamped second generation image with grey DI onto white Bielo CS. Masked the images and inked the corner with blue dye inks from Altenew. I colored the leaves with Zig Clean Brush pens. Lightly colored the flowers also with grey zig brush pen. I used Faber Castell Polychromos to give the shading. I inked another CS piece with the same blue inks to get an ombre look. Mounted the pieces onto a white CS and added enamel dots around the image. Stamped the sentiment from Purely sentiments with Memento black ink and added few silver sequins.

* Few tips:

1. When using solid stamps for the first time, ink it with Versamark and lightly remove it with the palm of your hand. (Jennifer Mc Guire's tip) and the try stamping with your colored ink.

2. Always stamp new stamps on scraps before using them especially the solid ones.
