Go to the Stampendous website to check out this great range. Fran Seiford of Stampendous has some great YouTube clips showing us her "Encrusted Jewel" technique. I had a go for the background of my first card and I am looking forward to playing with this technique a lot more!!
I used the jumbo cling Holyhocks set for my first card. As well as the flower it has the gorgeous border that I have used on the right hand side of my card.
I embossed it with Aged Taupe embossing enamel for a lovely vintage effect.
For the "Encrusted Jewel" technique I sprinkled a selection of the powders onto some gold card stock then heated from underneath to melt and fuse everything together.
I used Aged Rose, Shabby White and Aged Gold embossing enamels. I also sprinkled on some bronze crushed glass glitter and some sage fragments. They give some great texture and colours .... I love them!!
My second card is a beautiful floral stamp CRW069 Botanical Magnolia. I wanted to keep this more simple as the drawing is so detailed and delicate ...it speaks for itself.
