My current obsession is with Altenew stamps so of course I’ve already acquired several of them to play around with. Since my style tends to be clean and simple, a card featuring a single sprigg of Lantana from the Beautiful Lady stamp set seemed like a good place to start.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper with VersaMark and heat embossed it using Stampendous! Embossing Powder in Detail White. The image was watercolored using distress inks and a water brush. After the image was dry, I applied Ranger’s Micro Glaze to seal the distress inks. The sentiment — from Penny Black’s Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set — was stamped on vellum with Stazon ink. Add a few enamel dots from Echo Park’s Jack and Jill Collection and we have a winner!
