Hello lovelies, I hope you are all having a great week ?
This week some of the team are showcasing the awesome Citrus Trimmings Stamp set. This set like the Floral Trimmings set can be used in so many ways.
I have got a slight addiction lately to using metallic watercolours, I love how easy they are to use and also the effect they give and wanted to try them out with this set.
I started off by heat embossing the two citrus trimmings stamps onto some black card…this is not watercolour card and along as you don’t add too much water or start to blend i have found this takes these paints really well.
I used clear embossing powder, but looking at this card now I wish i’d used gold. I mixed some of the colours as I didn’t have a “true” orange type colour and once that was done I set about painting and when i was happy i left it to dry. As you can see in the picture about the shimmer you get is beautiful and works so well with the citrus colours.
I trimmed down a piece of black card and heat embossed the “I’m grateful for your friendship” I LOVE any form of punny sentiment so had to use this.
I adhered this all to a black card base and added some of the Gold crystals to just add a little extra sparkle.
This was certainly a fun and different way to use this set.
Have you enjoyed the teams creations so far ? What would you create with this set ? Let us know in the comments below.
I hope you have a great day.
WOW! This is absolutely stunning, Tracy! The colour combination, the shimmer…oh my! Swooning!
