I have a sample to share with you which I made for Crafty Individuals featuring their newest stamp, Elements stamp CI-429
The background consists of Brushos. In an ideal world I would now list the colours I used except for this card I would be guessing because I had several Brushos (available from That’s Crafty) in front of me and it was a scatter here and a scatter there! I did finish with a spritz of Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mica Mist Tarnished Gold (also available from That’s Crafty). You can see the subtle glimmer in this photo.I used cold pressed watercolour paper and I wasn’t sure if it was the most suitable surface for stamping the detailed stamp with crisp results but I wasn’t prepared to use hot press as I wanted the texture. I simply stamped onto tissue paper. Normally I want the tissue paper to melt into the base but I decided I liked the texture achieved with the feather edges around the stamping.A Crafty Individuals sentiment stamped onto some lovely mulberry paper which I’d previously painted, left over from some other artwork, as was the painted muslin. They were gathered together with some other bits.Thank You for your visit to this scheduled post. I still have some Valentine creations to share with you but as this card was made weeks ago for Crafty Individuals, it seemed only fair I now shared it.
