Here is another one of the pieces I made using the new and oh so wonderful LYNNE PERRELLA stamps from the equally as great PAPER ARTSY. On all of these I have stamped in black and then as I mentioned in the previous post, I embossed using Ranger's Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.
I used Alcohol Inks to color in the embossed areas and I used colored pens to the other areas. The backgrounds are acrylic paints, Twinkling H20's, black and white rub-ons for added interest and some miscellaneous doodling with a black felt Sharpie pen. The flowers on this one were great fun to make. The actually flower stamp is from a Pink Paislee clear stamp set. But the fun was in using the new SILKS Acrylic Glaze paints from the same makers of the Twinkling H20's. I have to tell you that these paints are amazing!!!! Do yourself a favor and rush over to www.DreamingColor.com and buy some. They are more of a glaze than a traditional acrylic paint, so when you do layers of colors, all the colors shine through in a stunning way. I used a couple different blues and teals on the flowers and they turned out so well. Unfortunately, the pictures didn't completely pick up the depth in the colored flowers. The seeds in the middle of the flowers were made using Rangers black enamel accents.
