How do you like my Patent Leather Painted Poppies?
I’m calling the poppies “patent leather,” because I cut the “frames” from Black Foil that looks just like patent leather. I used the die from the Poppy Moments die set for cutting, which made it very easy to do.
I wanted the sentiment to be shiny like the “frames,” so I used VersaMark and Black Embossing Powder. “Hello” (Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set) was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock, sprinkled with the powder, and set with the Heat Tool.
TIP: I stamped the sentiment first, in case it didn’t stamp just right, and used the Embossing Buddy to improve my chances. You can see in this close-up, there’s still room for improvement! Fortunately, the camera picks up more than the naked eye, so the stray powder won’t be seen by the recipient.
I used the “splotch” and “splatter” stamps from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set for the red and pink colors. The “splotch” is in Melon Mambo Ink and Lovely Lipstick Ink, which I stamped several times without re-inking. The “splatter” is Melon Mambo, stamped-off in two places.
After placing the poppy “frames” on Dimensionals, I added a few black jewels from my stash.
Today’s colors are from the Paper Players.
I’m also sharing with the “let it grow” theme at Global Design Project.
