Good morning! I’m continuing my study of the gorgeous background stamps from Simon Says Stamp! 😉 You can find two cards using the Emma background here. Today I focused on the Elizabeth background stamp and I love it just as much as the Emma! 😉
I decided that I wanted to experiment with very saturated watercolors in a peacock palette! I started by stamping the Elizabeth background with versamark and then heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. Next I used my deep blue and persian green zig clean color real brush markers to add color to each segment and then blended it together with a damp paintbrush. In some areas I used a mix of both colors and in some areas I only used one. Varying the amount of water I used or the amount of each color helped to create different shades of blue green. I let it dry completely and then stamped the sentiment with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder. If I did it again I’d probably use the same embossing powder for the sentiment and the background as the gold and gold tinsel are slightly different shades of gold. Oops… 😉
Seriously though…this stamp is just as gorgeous as the Emma background! Next up…the Elinor! 😉 Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Friday!
