My Country Home stamp set hadn’t seem ink for quite some time but that has all changed with the arrival of our new Puff Paint (page 19 of the Holiday Catalogue).
Previously I had coloured the ‘cotton’ flowers in with different colours – check this post here.
I’m loving the puff paint – it’s up there with heat embossing :). If you haven’t tried it yet you need to add this product to your next order. At only NZD9.50 it’s a great product that will add texture and give a 3D look to your projects. It’s really easy to apply – cover in the area you need or draw a line with the nozzle and heat it with your heat tool. It’s fun watching it puff up. Here are a couple of close up shots.
Doesn’t that look cool?
I used our Stampin’ Blends to colour in my image – Dark Old Olive for the leaves, Light and Dark Cajun Craze for the flowers, Dark Blackberry Bliss for the berries and Light and Dark Smoky Slate for the can.
The mat is Smoky Slate which has been dry embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder, I then lightly sponged Smoky Slate ink across the top using a Sponge Dauber. The image was stamped in Memento Black ink on a piece of Thick Whisper White which had first been die cut using the Rectangle Stitched dies (this was the 5th biggest) then matted to a piece of Cajun Craze (die cut with the 6th biggest die). The Cajun Craze Linen Thread is from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo on page 47 of the Holiday Catalogue.
I got hooked on this stamp set and design and have since made another 8 cards – I can’t share all of them yet as some only got put in the post today.
Until next time …
