The first challenge was to add layers. I used stamps away stamp n colour card which is semi glossy. The archival resist technique used in the previous project involves at least two layers, first the stamped archival ink, then the distress. I used the summer colours, picked raspberry and salty ocean. I added a third layer by stamping butterflies with clear ink and clear embossing. I then added a fourth layer using mowed lawn distress ink. The black swirl is stamped onto the distressed cardstock and embossed with WOW ebony embossing powder.
I added another dimension by making an acetate wrap onto which I stamped and embossed the sentiment. Finally I stamped some butterflies and embossed them using WOW white pearl. I then took some cosmic shimmer mica powders in colours matching the inks and dusted that over the embossing before reheating. I cut out the butterflies and adhered them to the acetate front.
All stamps used were by Sheena Douglass
I would like to enter this project into Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stamper Build your layers challenge , the Country View Crafts Summer Sizzler challenge and the WOW embossing powder summer and sunshine challenges
