SweetheartPosted: January 18, 2017 Filed under: Uncategorized 6 Comments
I’m featuring another pretty stamp from the Penny Black ‘Follow your heart‘ release today. This one is appropriately named sweetheart; don’t you think those delicate little flowers are sweet? I used the emboss resist technique to make the heart appear white on a pink, yellow and orange background.
I started by stamping the heart on watercolour paper in versamark then embossed in clear powder. I used peerless watercolours to paint over the embossed image diluting with water and blending the colours as I added them. I kept it fairly soft then used more intense colour to highlight a few of the flowers. I chose hot pink to frame the panel and stamp the sentiment which co-ordinated with the brightest areas on the watercoloured panel. I ended up offsetting the panel from the frame, a technique I’ve seen others do successfully, and I quite like it. I noticed as I played with the positioning that it worked best when the pink mat was centred and the painted panel offset not the other way round.
