I got my Stampin' Up order in yesterday for my first stamp club ever! Can you tell I'm ultra excited? I was trying out a glue pen emboss resist technique as a test run for the gals; hope they like it. It's really easy and fun. You can get so much detail with it, and what a hoot to colour with the glue pen. Made me feel like a kid again. :0) Here's a tutorial in case you'd like to try it:
5) Sketch the shapes of petals that you'd like in a signo gel pen (after you cut it out, you can use the sponge dauber with left over ink to remove this guideline.) If you've like to skip this step, you can just use your scallop punch on the flower; it fits perfectly. Cut out flowers & shape them with your fingers (to give the petals a little curl.) I've also added black lines around this one, by using Black craft ink on an aqua painter; Makes it look more like it's stamped
The flower is from the Kind Thoughts stamp set (the main card is stamped with it too.)
The Tempting Turquoise strip is just cardstock with the Sanded background stamped on it repeatedly in white craft. I wanted Basic Grey paper, but didn't have the right colour. In the end, I like this better (That's crazy, huh?) Rub-ons (from saleabration mini,) Basic Black cardstock & black S.U. grosgrain ribbon.
Thanks for Looking,
