Fun with Twinkling H2O’s

Happy New Year!  I truly hope 2018 is going to be our best year yet (I know, I say it every year but we gotta live in hope, right? lol)

It’s new release time at Whimsy Stamps and there’s a smorgasbord to choose from this month – from the sweetest new fairies, background stamps and fun stencils as well as sentiment sets and super cute images ……. can you say penguin?!?  So pop on over to the website to take a peek.  I’ve linked the products used at the end of the post.

I’ll be featuring one of the fairies tomorrow, but for now I’ve make a jewel toned card using of of the new stencils, a new set of sentiment stamps and I even dug out and blew off the dust of my Twinkling H2O’s to make the background for my card.  Go me!

I started off the background with embossing paste through the Flower Flourish stencil, poured over gold embossing powder whilst the paste was still wet and set it aside to dry for a couple hours.  Only then did I heat emboss it to set the powder, this way the paste was already dry so didn’t bubble up.  Then I set to with three Twinkling H2O colours and had fun.  I used to love getting inky but somehow over the years lost sight of this once I started in with copic markers.  I’m so glad I now have the time to do this more often.

I finished off the card with some mulberry flowers and a sentiment from the You’re My Always stamp set which I mounted behind a clay frame.
