My little scraproom has been in a total mess since christmas, not a chance to get anything done in there. :Þ But yesterday I did a little tidying up and naturally I NEEDED to play a little afterwards. I christmas card I got from one of my stamping sisters was sitting at my desk, and I have been wanting to make a special card for her. In the process I got to do some experimenting with some new stuff.
The dress stamp is an old one, but still one of my favorites! It is heat embossed in black on heavy watercolor paper. I colored it using Distress ink (refills) and some mica powder mixed into it. Turns out REALLY purty. I added a little water to the ink where I wanted the color to be a little thinner. NOTE: I only used ONE color for this, the inks are just so great, they change color on their own! :D gotta LOVE IT! The big rose was inked in the same way.
