Happy Friday! I had been wanting to try my Polychromos on kraft paper for awhile now, and when I was working on projects for the Hero Arts 2018 Summer Catalog, I found the perfect stamp to try it with – the Nasturtium Stamp&Cut.
I started out by stamping the flowers on kraft cardstock in VersaMark, and then heat embossing in White. I really didn’t have to do any masking – the stamp lends itself quite well to rotating to different positions. After I heat embossed it once, the next time I stamped and added embossing powder, I could just brush away any overlapping embossing powder.
Once I had all the images stamped and heat embossed, I colored the images in with PolyChromos. My sister says it makes it look like a Christmas card, but….whatevs. 😉
I then trimmed around the flowers, cutting in between and on the edges, for a bit of a peek-a-boo look. Then I adhered the flowers to a card base.
Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!
