Remembrance ...always!

I stamped the (own design) script in black, let it dry and then moved the card slightly (up and to the right) in my stampingtool; then heat embossed it in white. To not get the white embossing on top of the foliage, I brushed the white embossing powder off the image before heat setting. 

Close-up of the script :

Rudbeckia is one of my favorite flowers
Playing with Nuamce on the gelliplate is always fun. 

 I do not know which colors I've used, as I did not clean the plate during printing a whole bunch of backgrounds. 
That's part of the fun, as the outcome will be unpredictable .. tiny bits of color appear where you did not expect them to be. 

To be able to stamp the flower stamp twice, I masked the first stamped part. Masking has been done as well to be able to stamp the script.

Playing with Minx Shimmering Inks - no 6

Remember these posts Playing with Minx -4 
Playing with Minx - 5 

Remember that, on an old table: using a bucket of water and paper, and of course ... Minx,
I created a whole bunch of backgrounds?? 

Today's post features the beautiful vibrancy of the Minx Shimmering Inks.
 The background on canvas paper.. still wet but drying in the sun!

Later on, I discovered that I must have dropped some water on it by mistake, as it had more drops than showing on this photo... that's part of the fun!
I had to be everywhere, because the robot lawnmower wanted to mow over my backgrounds sometimes, hehe.

I wanted to enhance the drops, so I did not cover it up, but overstamped and used the background as part of the images.
Don't forget.. there is a Snapguide at the end of this post, showing the steps to achieve the finished card.

A close-up: watch the droplet... with the inks all pushed to the edges of it. I think that's magic... I couldn't have painted it that way!

 Now for the second background:  very different paper, but a beauty too!

I cut it to size...

... and created this:

I sponged these tiny dots from the Lotus Stencil around the edge.

...for step-by-steps of this second card too, please see the Snapguide.

Butterflies everywhere...

Making collages with a few stamps and tissue wrap and of course color... that never seems to bore me.

I stamped the background script with an ART ANTHOLOGY sorbet, color Mermaid.
