paperartsy blue flowerI recently attended a training weekend with PaperArtsy and then time has just whizzed past and I haven’t had a chance to do anything with the stamps I got on the day.  I’ll be soon getting these new designs in stock – once time allows!!  So a quick and easy tag idea for you.  I started by stamping and embossing my flower stamp in White embossing powder (have you seen we now stock loads of Wow embossing powders – they are fab!!)… sorry – easily distracted…back to my design.  paperartsy blue flower2So, once you have embossed, then go over the top with distress inks – I’ve used Blueprint Sketch and a mix of the other paler blues applied with my applicator for smoother blending.  A final addition of some ink through a stencil adds a bit of further detail.  Finally take a soft cloth and buff up your white embossing to remove any distress ink resting on top of it.
Its a fun technique that can be ideal for a quick card idea.

happy crafting
