More of Scandinavian Prints with Daria

Hi Dear Friends!

Daria here. You won't  believe, but this weekend, I again was playing with Scandinavian prints stamps and dies. I am in love with this stamp set and really wanted to create with it as many variants as possible. It is a really unique set as you can get so many different looks out of it.

For this card, I tried a technique taught by Jennifer Mcquire at Background Class at Onlinecardclasses - wanted to try it for a while already, and so happy I finally did.  It is all about embossing ressist.

At first, I losely watercolored some pink circles and added different shades of green in between. Last week, I also played with this stamp and die set - to create a stencil. I used the same stencil to have an idea where to color those pinkish circles.... Then, I heat embossed flowers and leaves shapes on top of my watercoloring using clear embossing powder. For the flowers, you can use the same stencil to apply embosing ink through it, or just turn the outlined flower shape stamp backwards, and stamp with back more solid side.

After it all was done, I blended Hickory Smoke Disstress ink on top of the whole panel. Heat embossed flowers and leaves resisted the color blending and created a very neat effect :)

Finally, I foam monted my panel over Neenah Dessert storm card base and finished with a sentiment from the same stamp set. I think that sentiments in the set are so delicate and add that perfect little touch of character.

I hope it gave you some ideas how to stretch your stamps even further :)

Thank you so much for stopping by.
