I received my delivery of the new Funky Fossil stamps today, and got crafting immediately. I had already routed through my gel plate/ pan pastel backgrounds and put aside a couple of backgrounds that I thought would suit the new "Lotus Reflections" stamp set.
I stamped the main image and sentiment in Wow! Clear Embossing Ink and then covered both with Wow! Rich Gold Super Fine Embossing Powder and heat set.
At the same time, I stamped the individual lotus flower on to a small off-cut of a purple background I had saved and heat embossed in the same gold powder, I then cut out the flower and adhered into position.
Because some of the background design was quite faint I went over some of the background area with the "Forest Foliage" and "Distressed Diamonds" stencils with "Blueprint Sketch" Distress Oxide Ink.
I edged the gel plate background with a metallic gold pen line and then added some gold dots to the background, before mounting on to purple card.
