Congratulations to this week's Featured Stamper, Sandi (SandiMac)!
I chose this card as my inspiration:
INCLUDE: florals, colours, rectangular frame
MODIFY: just one, negative frame, watercoloring instead of repeat stamping, die cut under the stamped/embossed sentiment,
EXCLUDE: one of the frames
I heat embossed the background stamp onto watercolour paper, and then watercoloured it in layers, building up colour in the shadow and overlap areas.
I cut it with rectangle dies to create a negative frame.
I stamped the sentiment onto pearlescent vellum, and then heat embossed it with Cloud 9 embossing powder, which is kind of a sparkly silver with a pink tint to it. I die cut it with the coordinating die, and then glued it to another die cut which I had cut from Neenah. I popped it up with foam tape.
