Embossed PaisleyPosted: April 25, 2012
I mentioned in my last post that I had played around with the Paisley stamps on the weekend. I used the emboss resist technique on both cards, embossing the paisley images first in clear embossing powder and then sponging the entire panel in shades of blue or yellow & orange. In the card below I embossed both paisley stamps and the sentiment; after all the sponging was completed I stamped the unfilled paisley stamp a few times in brown.
I must admit that when I first saw these stamps, although I loved the intricate designs, I wondered how I was going to use such large images. Stamping the image off the edge of the panels works really well as the detail is still evident but fitting in multiple whole paisley images is not necessary.
I am going to have more fun with these stamps and the emboss resist technique; the two are made for each other!
