Addicted to Stamps and More #182

Hi guys

Over at Addicted to Stamps and More we have a brand new challenge just starting.  And this week we're back with one of our regular themes which is...

Make Your Mark
Please check out the guidelines here for more information.

Our Sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More and the prize being offered this week is 3 digital images!

I decided to have a play with one of my new stamp set purchases for this week's DT card...  

I started by creating a blue watercolour wash with a Distress Ink on a watercolour panel.  When dry I removed the static with my EK Success powder tool and stamped the flower and butterfly in VersaMark before heat embossing in white.  I then coloured in the images with my Zig pens, blending the colours with water.  I stamped the sentiment in black and mounted the panel onto some deep purple cardstock before adhering flat to the card base.

Materials used:

  • Ink: Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass; Versafine - Onyx Black; VersaMark
  • Stamps: Altenew - Botanical Garden; Clearly Besotted - Flight of Fancy
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
  • Coloured with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens
  • Cardstock from stash
