I will STAMP!
Some Tuesday nights are late nights for DH. So I took the opportunity to stamp one more card in my attempts to become a fabulous flower artist. (Said with a French accent.) Oooh, I spoke too soon. DH just walked in. I'll be quick.
This is a card I made using "Petal Prints" with the pastel emboss technique. Using dark cardstock, stamp your solid image using versamark. Then sprinkle white embossing powder over it. Heat set. Then, using the blender pens, apply pastels. Now I read somewhere that blender pens will seal up your pastels so I only used a corner of my pastel. After you have colored in your images, heat set again. (Or spray with fixative.)
It is really quite striking! But still...not the most realistic flower colors.
