My favorites! Lotus Blooms and Floral Silhouette

Hi All,

It's Priya again from priya-n-papers! I was given the opportunity to pick some of my favorite Mudra stamps and craft! It was hard to pick from all the beautiful Mudra stamps I have so far, but I settled down for "Lotus Blooms" and "Floral Silhouettes".

My Favorite 1 : Lotus Blooms

As you all might have guessed by now, I have control issues! When I work on a stamp, I want to try all the possibilities with that stamp at once! so again, I made 3 cards with this stamp set! All 3 cards have same design or stamps/layout but different techniques!

Card 1 : Coloring on Vellum :

 Procedure :
* I made my background with a 3D embossing folder and lightly colored it in blue and yellow colors.
* Then I did some heat embossing with white embossing powder.
* I brought in some zig clean clear brush markers and colored in the embossed images. For some added fun, I blended the colors with wink of stella clear glitter pen.

Here is a close up. It looks so gorgeous in real!

Card 2 : Heat embossing on Vellum

Procedure :
* Prepared the background with Red, Yellow and Blue color markers. Blended these for a rainbow effect
* Then I stamped the outlined images with clear embossing ink and embossed it with Silver embossing powder.
Love how the silver images pops out!

Card 3 : Distressing with Water lifting
I recently learnt this awesome technique and thought of sharing with you all!
Procedure :
* Heat emboss the outlined images on watercolor paper
* Distress whole paper with various distress inks.
* Now put water inside the outlined lotus images with the help of a paint brush and lift the water off the paper using a paper towel.

Love how this turned out!

My Favorite 2 : Floral Silhouette 

I totally loved this solid floral stamp! Last time I colored the images, this time I wanted to try heat embossing. While selecting the colors, I thought of those pretty Indian sarees and the rich and fabulous color combos these comes in. I wanted to achieve that elegance in my cards too! Pics are not able to do the justice to the beauty of these cards.

Procedure :
1. Layout the floral images from the stamp set as per your choice onto your stamping tool or acrylic block.
2. Stamp the layout with clear embossing ink and heat emboss the panels with Gold and Silver embossing powder
3. Die cut the panels with some stitched dies. You can also trace and cut
4. Now distress the 4 pieces with distress inks of your choice
5. Put the panels together and you are done!
