Ahh blisto

One of the challenges over at ILWS this month is to create a project using wax. I don't have any wax crayons and no blank candles at the moment so I used clear embossing powder.

I've used the yummy Sale-A-Bration Bliss stamp set for this one:

I started off with a piece of Whisper White card and stamped some of the butterflies with Versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Next was to brayer over gently using Peach Parfait ink followed by a gentle covering of Melon Mambo. The next stage was to stamp some of the flowers, again using Versamark and clear heat embossing then brayering over with Rose Red ink.

My final stage was to over stamp once dry using the large flourish stamp from the same set in Basic Black which I left for some time before touching it to make sure it had dried over the embossed areas.

The last thing I did was to stamp the sentiment and layer the card up on Basic Black and Rose Red.

  1. Oh this is a beauty, I didn't like Bliss until I saw this! xxx

  2. Victoria, Thank-you for this lovely card. It inspired me to use my brayer which I hardly ever use. I changed things up a bit when I made my version. I have just finished making 16 different cards with the Bliss set.
