Hello, and Welcome To This Week's Wednesday  Blog Post.

Its Jo summers here from Daisy D's.

I love some of the amazing, back ground stamps available. We tend to use them as the are called, for back grounds.

But as they are so beautiful , I decided to make my card and use this as a focal point.

With the weather now turning to Autumn, I brought in some autumnal tones.

I place the back ground stamp, on to my class mat.

I ink it up in the embossing ink. I then bring my card stock and place it over the top.

I then use a piece of copy paper over that so I don't transfer the ink any ware else. 




The next step is to emboss the image in white embossing powder.

 I then trim it to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2""



I choose my oxide colours.



I work from left to right. Lightest colour first.



When I am happy with the colour I splat a little water, and lift of excess with kitchen roll.

Then I splat with the gold water colour paint.


Then I stamp the sentiment on to black card stock and emboss in gold.Then foam mount it on to the 

card. I also trim of the end at an angle.




Finally I add Nuvo drops and Heart sticker.


I do hope you enjoyed this post,

wishing all the best and Happy Stamping.
