Welcome to another edition of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Let's Sale-A-Brate. Sale-A-Bration is just 2 weeks old and going strong! I am so happy with this year's selection of Sale-A-Bration choices, which made it a difficult decision to choose what to share for this blog hop. I decided that I would use the Delicate Details stamp set and Inside the Lines DSP. Bet ya didn't see that coming?!
There is a lot going on in this sample but I hope you think it is a harmonious combination. I started off by using the lovely new Watercolor pencils in the Occasions catalog and colored in the images with the assistance of the blender pen. I used primarily the Daffodil Delight, Real Red, and Old Olive pencils for my coloring. I stamped and embossed the Delicate Details in silver embossing and roughly cut it out. Don't look too closely cause you will see how roughly I did cut. I started to layer everything up and then decided it just needed something more.
See what I did? I inked up the entire image with VersaMark ink and then sprinkled a custom mix of Dazzling Details embossing powder and Clear embossing powder and then heat embossed it. Oh how I love that glittery goodness. I started making this custom mix of embossing powder when Stampin' Up! stopped selling the Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I start with a one to one ratio and go from there. The side view sort of captures some of the glitter. The bluish tinge is just the reflection of the glitter. I tied a little solid Black twine which is something I reach for a lot.
