Hello. Welcome. Last evening I had a crafty get together with my friend Elin. Hi Elin. Elin discovered heat embossing and I discovered this lovely stamp she had in her stash. ROFL. So I stamped off a few images and today I decided to try water colouring with my Cosmic Shimmer paints. I am seeing cool watercolour techniques all over blogland but it never seems to work so well for me. That said, I was quite pleased with the finished result
I tried a little experiment. I stamped Penny Black's ...for a spin stamp and embossed with clear powder. I have used the same Cosmic Shimmer colours on both images but the top one was spritzed with water before I started colouring. Much better coverage and blending me feels. It's a pity you don't get to see the shimmer. It's pretty cool. The red combs and orange beaks were coloured with distress markers.
I chose the pre-spritzed image, blacked the edges and mounted on a black base card. The sentiment is a combination of Unity stamps.
