More Stamp a Stack.

Hi, here is the other card we made at the Stamp a Stack. Again the girls had to make 5 in different colours and using different greetings. The stamp sets used are Because I Care and Afterthoughts, both are level 1 hostess sets. The base card has been embossed with embossing folders using the Big Shot and lightly sponged. After stamping the flower on Whisper White card we stamped again on scrap paper and cut out to make a reverse mask. Placed the mask over the flower and lightly sponged ink onto the flower image. Then added detail with a Stampin' Write Marker. A really fun and quick way to colour. We then added Champagne Shimmer Mist with a dauber to added a bit of shimmer. (Scroll down to see close up of shimmer) We then added a greeting, a cute bow and distressed the edges with the cutter kit.

This first card is in Pretty in Pink with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.

This one is Peach Parfait with the Elegant Lines embossing folder. I went a crazy with the sponging on this one.

And this one is Certainly Celery with the Manhattan Flower embossing folder.

Here is the close up of the Shimmer Paint. It's very hard to photograph, but it looks fantastic. A tip when using Shimmer Paint, Less is Best.
