Take Flight 20 – Day 13, Fresh and clean Spring card

February 16, 2013
Take Flight Twenty Penny Black
Karen Dunbrook is here today and sharing a neat way to use solid background stamps to create a focal image. She said, “I wanted to show how to use this stamp for more then just a background.  First, I stamped the main panel with Pear Tart Memento ink.  After cleaning my stamp, I applied Versamark and white embossing powder and heated with my heat tool.  I punched a circle out from the white embossed piece, then using the green ink again and a water pen, I coloured the leaves in to give a reverse of the flowers on the background. The fresh feel of the green really makes me want for Spring!”
