Stamp-Off Friday – Textures!
I’m enjoying Jackie’s, Susan’s and my Friday Challenges. They’re so much fun, and they are challenging. But the best part is if we just can’t get it going, it’s ok. We’re all very understanding and easy to get along with.
This week’s challenge is textures. It could be using multiple layers, sponging or using texture stamps, using some kind of textured paper or ribbon…anything that adds texture to the project.
I decided to use the new Touches of Texture stamp set with Birthday Blossoms. I know what you’re thinking. “Those aren’t Birthday Blossoms flowers! Those are Flower Shop flowers!” That would be correct. However, my first attempt at this was at my craft day, and I only had white embossing powder. It looked ok, but every time I saw the card, the embossing just seemed so…white. The rest of the card was understated, and those white embossed flowers just jumped at your face. I had wanted to use the new and gorgeous copper embossing powder, but, um, “someone” was in my embossing drawer and moved it, so I couldn’t find it when I was packing up.
As I was starting to write this blog post, though, I had to redo. But – another oops – I had loaned Birthday Blossoms to a friend. So that’s why my Birthday Blossoms are Flower Shop flowers.
I restamped the flowers on vellum card stock with Versamark, then embossed with copper powder (yes, I did find it) and punched them out. I colored the petals on the back of the vellum with a Marina Mist Stampin’ Write Marker.
I didn’t have a Marina Mist stamp pad with me either. I think someone was using it that day and accidentally slipped it in her bag. It will probably come home next week! Anyway – I colored the sentiment with the Marina Mist marker as well. It isn’t as perfect as it would be with a stamp pad, but I kind of like it. It gives it a little more texture as well!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
