Hello! Welcome to my 3rd monthly stamp study! On the first Saturday of each month, I will use a stamp set as my study and create a few samples with it. Today is the day to share them! I have chosen this stamp Persian Motif from Altenew. This set actually made it into Jennifer McGuire's Favorite Crafty Things video! No wonder...because I LOVE creating cards with this fabulous set.
Rich and exotic colors come to mind when you think of Persian Motif. The special thing about this card is that I used Pico Embellisher to color all the images. The super thin tips were fun and easy to use. Once dried, it leaves a thin layer! I know I will use them more often in my future projects.
Card stock: white (Michael’s, 110 lbs), navy blue (DCWV)
Stamps: Persian Motifs (Altenew)
Inks: Navy Blue (Hero Arts), IrRESISTibles (Pear Tart, Dandelion, Sweet Plum,Angel Pink) Pico Embellisher by Tsukineko
Embossing Powder: white (Recollections)
Accessories: gems (Recollections),pop dots (Recollections)
I took a simple approach with my 2nd card.
I white-embossed the image over Add a Little Dazzle Metal craft sheet, then cut out the images....voila! The leaves were colored with the same medium (Pico Embellisher) as the first card.
For my 3rd card, I wanted to try something a little different. I embossed flowers in white on vellum. Then I flipped the vellum and used the other side, so the white embossed flower are more subtle. I also wanted to use the bright pattern paper to accentuate the design.
The sentiment treatment was an after thought. I managed to save it after an embossing attempt of the sentiment went wrong. I added the pattern paper and did some stitching with the sequins. I am kind of glad about the "happy accident" because I love the result!
Previously, I also matched this set up with another floral stamp set.
