Make & Take Friday 23rd July

Flower Stem.
This image is from a set by Impression Obsession, the words in the background are also in the same set with all different flower names. The flower has been stamped and embossed in black and coloured and sponged around the edge.
I was trying a new technique on the background piece-- take a piece of white card and 2 different colours of dye based ink, I used Adirondack Lettuce and Sunshine, and sponge all over so there is no white showing, now use a medium grain sandpaper and scratch some back to the white card then rub on a third colour where you have sanded, I used Red Pepper, the colour soaks in more where you have sanded.
 Now spray with water so it is speckled not puddled and immediately place a piece of kitchen towel on it to soak up the water, dry it off with a heat gun,  now sponge all around with Red Pepper.
Next I used Enchanted Gold Cosmic Shimmer mica powder and with a damp sponge dabbed it all around the edges over the red. You cant see it in the picture but the edge looks quite gold and shiny,
