Stretch Your Stamps: Day 2 - Metallic On Black - Reverse Background Stamps

Hi! I tried the technique demonstrated so well by my all time favourite crafter, Jennifer McGuire on Day 2 of Stretch Your Stamps 2. Here is the result.


I used my own, DIY background stamp and embossed using silver, gold and copper colours.


The embossing powders are also made by me, since I have only gold powder in my stash. I just mixed the Fevicryl metallic powders with a little clear embossing powder.

Entering this card in the following challenges:

Fusion Card Challenge - The Beach House
I used the sketch.



STAMPlorations August 2014 Challenge - Stamps & Die cuts
The butterflies are stamped and heat embossed and I used my favourite Chloe stem die


Lessology Challenge #39: Fluttering butterflies


Hope you liked this card.

Love,
Nan
