Magic Painting for Grown Ups!!

Hi Guys
I really am turning into a rubbish blogger. I don't know where the time goes to, but here I am a week late with my DT post for Hobby Art.

I decided that I would share a card that I made in a recent class using one of my all time favourite stamp sets.

I have created a panel using the Resist Technique. (Stamp image onto Glossy card stock using a Versamark Inkpad, heat set, sponge with Dye Based Ink to reveal your stamped images.)

It is possible to use both fine line and detailed images with this technique. It even works really well with words as you can see. Once the panel has been sponged with colour (I used a Kaleidacolor Inkpad for this piece) buff with a piece of kitchen paper to remove any excess ink. I have also stamped and embossed a sentiment into the corner using Onyx Black Versafine and clear embossing powder.

The background card has been dry embossed using a Dotty Embossing folder and then mounted onto a white card base. I'm afraid that the pictures make it all look dark blue, where in fact it is a rather subtle mixture of pinks and purple.

Let’s hope that my next post will be a little more on time, or I may find myself sacked from the team lol.

I'm off to finish a couple more samples for Jenny’s next TV appearance. I've had more lovely new stamps to play with, how lucky am I?
 Hugs and happy stamping Kimx
