Today is my turn to share some inspiration on the One Crazy Stamper blog and I've decided it's time to finally celebrate the arrival of spring. I know it's here (hopefully) because the cherry tree is blooming and perennials are popping up everywhere.
I was trying for something different this week and was aiming for big white paint splats but it just didn't work because the kraft paper seemed to be very absorbent and it soaked the ink right up until it almost disappeared. Time to pull out the Frantage! I love using that embossing powder and although it's not the look I was aiming for, I am happy with the effect.
The next step was to stamp the LL014 Spirits a Lift sentiment and lightly sprinkle Frantage on the surface. When I use Frantage, I always apply it loose (no Versamark) and heat it from the bottom until it melts. I stamped and cut out the T209 Basket of Love image and then cut another set of those funny little faces and a bow, then coloured everything. Once I glued them down and the petals remained loose, it looks a little like the paper tole craft some of us used to dabble in.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
