I’m sorry about my absence in the last few weeks….. It’s been very naughty of me to not to have been blogging……. I’ll try and be better!! Promise.
I’ve been having a play with my new set – ‘Fifth Avenue Floral’. I’ve found an amazing tutorial by a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Patty Bennet, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxCsVlvKIM8
The roses are water coloured using the following method: Stamp your image in Versa Mark on white paper and then Emboss with White Embossing powder (using your heat gun). Spray image with water (I just used my ironing spray bottle and put the card stock in a Tupperware container’s lid) until it’s very wet. Choose some nice ‘rose’ coloured inkpads… pinks, yellows, apricots. Squeeze the lid of your Stampin’ Up! inkpad into the inkpad mat, so there is a pool of ink on the inside of the lid. Take your Aquapainter and dip into a pool of the ink. Place the loaded Aquapainter on a petal and let the colour run. Don’t be afraid to use more then one colour on a petal or to add more water to make the colour run a little more.
