(I watched some You Tube vid's last night on 'faux craft techniques' and came upon Faux Enameling. the lady in question used punched paper circles, to which she 'stamped' with an embossing ink pad then dipped the circles in clear embossing powder, then used the heat gun to dry. She then repeated the process to make it more glossy. Once done they really looked like she had used an enamel on them.)
I already had some butterflies which I had punched out for another project previously so I decided to have a go at enameling those. I pressed them into the embossing pad then dipped into the clear embossing powder pot, knocked the loose powder off then used the heat gun to dry - note to self Get longer tweezers - ouch. Then repeated the process. Not only does it look like enamel, it also makes the embellishments quite stiff.
Flicking through my snippet box, I really must get colour coded envelopes sorted, I found this pale yellow/cream card stock which fitted the description of the colour Jasmine 'creamy yellow' so I decided to use that.
The stamp came from a HUGE carrier bag full which I was gifted by a friend at work, I've sorted out the ones I want to keep (see what I did there - I didn't say I'd actually use them) and the other half I am going to take to the PDSA charity shop I visit.
Used black pigment ink for the design as I wanted a dreamy look and Stazon is to precise and clear for that.
