Hi everyone, I thought it was about time I cleaned a stencil I had used with oxide inks a while ago!
Instead of wiping it clean I spritzed it with water and pressed some card stock onto it. I was happy with the muted colours that came out.
I used the same colours on the mat panel and the butterfly, just blended inks on some card, spritzed with water and blotted some colour away before diecutting.
I'm linking up to CAS Mix Up Card Challenge where the theme is layered embossing powders.
I inked up my coloured butterfly with versamark, sprinkled on extra thick clear embossing powder, heated it, then added more powder and heated it for a glossier look. I sprinkled on some blush perfect pearls, to add some shimmer then more clear ep, then heated again.
It seemed to work ok, although some of the mica blew around when I turned on my heat gun! I don't have a frypan or griddle to try melting the powder with, and that may have worked better.
Here's a closer look.
My elements are layered embossing, stamping, diecutting, reversed stencilling.
I'm also linking up to the wedding/anniversary challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday,
and to the bright and beautiful challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday.
It's anything goes at Happy Little Stampers die challenge,
and anything goes as long as you use a stamp at Craft Stamper Magazine's
The theme is summer at Work it Wednesday,
These colours remind me of citrus, perfect for Summer!
