As part of my "you have more than enough craft stuff to last two lifetimes" I have to be able to utilise any new stamp in at least three ways, so before I bought this stamp I had already thought of the ways to use it, so far I have done two of the three but its such a versatile stamp I can now visualise another few ways to use it.
My first technique was of course to copic colour so my next technique had to be very different, I was inspired by videos from Jennifer McGuire and Kelly Latevola when I made this.
I stamped the image and sentiment with versa mark and embossed with detail white embossing powder from stampendous. Next I swiped the peacock feathers ink over the paper, I was going to blend with the tool but this was much quicker and made it darker. Then I simply used a brush and water and painted over the flowers, dabbing off the colour as it lifted. I was hoping it would be lighter but for a first attempt I think it looks ok.
