On the Woodware blog this week we have been going around the world, I have just had my first trip to Paris which was very exciting. I had planned a scrapbook page, but I thought that I would do a picture for the wall.
I used some Lavender Mulberry Paper you can see here that I placed it on the mount to do the first lot of stamping. I have used the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Charm Collection stamps and a variety of ColorBox dye inks. I decided to emboss the Effel Tower in green, but it really didn’t work!
To stick the mulberry paper to the mount I used USArtQuest PPA this is my favourite glue, it spreads very easily, and you don’t have to use very much.
So I have stamped it again on some paper from one of the GCD pads stamped with Raisin Pigment ink, then cut it out (roughly) and then covered the whole thing with a Watermark Pad and embossed it with clear powder I sprinkled a tiny bit of silver halo glitter on the powder. I used the Raisin Pad and the Stylus Tool with a round tip and inked all over to give a distressed look, this knocked back the black stamping, which I didn’t like.
