Here is my latest post for The Artistic Stamper Challenge. The topic this month is Heart Art and we are all looking forward to seeing you creations with Heart stamps.
All the paint i used on this project was Paperartsy and as most of the warmer colours are translucent colours I mixed a tiny bit of Snowflake with Postbox red to take away the translucency.
But it wouldnt be one of my posts without missing a photo now would it lol! After the ink had dried i added a very thin layer of crackle glaze left this to try and then added Chalk over the top and then dried
I stamped in versamark the solid heart from Roses are red plate and embossed with gold Wow embossing powder. These looked rather flat once dry so i added some grungepaste through the swirl mask and then popped some embossing powder over the top and left the paste to dry.
This really does need the paste to dry before heating the embossing powder, you can do it earlier but you don't get quite as good effect as you do when you leave it
I did the same on another heart
I also did the same technique with Love from the word mask
Left to dry then heat embossed I also stamped and embossed the small heart border, again from the Roses are red plate and cut them all out
I added some ground espresso through the swirl masks and also around the edge of the card and the hearts
Thanks for popping by and don't forget to let me know your thoughts and add your entry to the blog
