Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne's lace

I was very happy to receive this  stamp from the new catalog as I love the delicate appearance of Queen Anne’s Lace. I revisited a favourite technique when trying the stamp for the first time.

I stamped and embossed the image in clear powder then added sponging, deciding as I sponged where the light would be coming from. I used three green inks to sponge and stamped the floral stamp with the same three greens. You will be seeing more of this stamp for sure and the other delicate, pretty images in the transparent set too.

The introductions continue on the Penny Black blog today with transparent sets featured and give-aways offered (including the stamp above).

    Love this one, it’s definitely a “Heather” card all the way. I absolutely love the way you have the sunshine highlights placed as you did, with the darkening shadows out towards the edges and the darker green shadowing of the white flowers. Perfection. TFS

    So pretty! I didn’t realize at first it was a grouping of flowers; I thought you’d placed them individually.
