Hi friends! Happy Monday! We’re delighted to welcome back special guest Debby Hughes! Please be sure to watch the video for all the details and enjoy!
Hello, it’s Debby here. I know it is Diecember, but when I saw the Winter Flower stamp set with that gorgeous Poinsettia bouquet, I knew I had to stamp and paint it! I did use a die for the greeting though LOL.
STEP BY STEP HOW-TO:
• Prepare Hot Pressed watercolour card with Antistatic Powder.
• Stamp the Winter Flower image in Versamark ink and heat emboss with Antique Gold Embossing Powder
• Tape the card to a board to prevent warping when adding lots of water.
• Paint a light layer of watercolour into the areas contained by the embossed lines. Dot in more concentrated paint where the shadows will be – on the base of the leaves tucked into the bouquet and at the base of the petals where they dip into the flower center.
• Build up the layers of paint as each layer dries, adding more layers until there is depth but equally highlights on the painting.
• Emphasise the shadows with a brown Faber Castell Polychromo pencil.
• Splatter with White Gouache and left-over paint.
• Trim the panel to fit on a 5 inch by 7 inch Neenah Desert Storm card base.
• Heat emboss a sentiment from the Holiday Greetings stamp set.
• Die cut the greeting with a Mixed Label die.
• Rub Antique Linen and then Tattered Rose Distress Ink around the edges of the label with a blending brush.
• Splash with water and soak up some of the colour on the tag with a cloth.
• Attach the panel to the card base with foam tape.
• Attach the label, again with foam tape and using a T-square ruler to ensure the label is on straight.
• Embellish with Darice Crystal Sequins and Little Things From Lucy’s Cards Eggshell Pearls.
