Starting Stamping

I bought loads of stamps years ago, just because they looked so nice, I never really got around to using them so I decided (as i've got half term off, yipee!!!) to start to use them. Here's one I made yesterday. I'm quite pleased with the results. I used 'Glam' paper from the Crate Avenue collection for this one.

I stamped the image with black pigment ink onto creamy/white paper.

Then I painted it with water colours, I like the way the ink runs into the paint, giving it a pen and wash effect.

I used my embossing pen to colour in the parts I wanted to be silver then heat embossed it using silver embossing powder.
