Glowing Sunset with EP's


 Hi Stampers,
Last month I did the Technique Club Video featuring a Semi-Transparent Cosmic EP over the Mason Jar to give it a frosted look.  You can see the post here.  Sparkle N Sprinkle has lots of colors of Semi-Transparent Cosmic EP's so I wanted to try to technique out with a different stamp.  I started with Beccy Muir's Silhouette Stamp Set and just stamped with ink and then after cutting out the rectangle, covered the entire cardstock with Versamark.  Then I chose Skylight, Cotton Candy, Orange Sherbet and Lemon Sherbet and sprinkled them in layers and heated.  I loved the look of the colors, but I thought the background lacked some interest.

So I decided to pull out one of my book pages for my background and this time instead of just using ink to stamp the image I embossed it first with Satin Velvet EP,  then using the same colors as above did my sunset colors.  I think the image pops more this way and the type in the background added the interest I was looking for. Both cards were finished simple to let the image show shine as the focal point.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with the Satin Velvet again, then stamped just the silhouette flowers on the inside and batiked them with the different Cosmic EP's for a soft look.

I have a few more ideas in mind for this method...so keep watching!

Happy Stampin'
