It's All About Love (by Zoe)

Good morning Lovelies and welcome to my second post this month featuring these beautiful stamps. I have loved making samples with these stamp sets, so versatile!

I created this Eclipse card by cutting four sets of the letters and layering them after I had replaced the top layer to stamp and colour in with pencils, a very simple and effective techniqie, I think?

The second card is a fun technique I had seen on YouTube.
Using Yupo paper, you drop alcohol inks and blending solution and blow it around with a straw to spread it out. It dries fast, but some areas stay a bit sticky for a while, so at that stage I put some foil on and burnished it. When you lift the foil you get a random but stunning effect. I then used an inkpad to remove some of the ink with the lovely large corner flourish stamp in the top corner. Give it a minute or two to dry before buffing with a soft dry cloth to reveal the design. I used the same technique for the butterfly, using Archival Black Tuxedo inkpad.

The last three cards are gelli plate backgrounds using chalk paints.

Thank you so much for visiting, I love to hear what you think.
Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
