Janice Whymark Q Tell us about your embossed elements…
A I used white glitter embossing powder with a pale pastel background for the card base and white embossing powder over more vibrant colours for the main flowers.
Q Do you have any tips to share?
A It is always worth rubbing an anti-static bag over the paper first when embossing to get a clear image. Also don’t cut too closely to the finished image as it may crack and
Sue Cass Q What did you think of this floral project?
A The Hunkydory stamps are lovely and reminded me of a Mandela so I’ve done a slightly more casual, arty version by not centring the embossed flower layers.
Q You’ve used an old book as some of the flower layers – tell us about it!
A Because the colours are so vibrant I interspersed text layers to add interest and definition. Years ago I bought a really old book online and these pages are all about flower arranging so quite appropriate!
Kathleen Broughton Q How did you make your bouquet card?
A I stamped and heat embossed the Hunkydory stamps using white WOW! Embossing Powder and then painted them with Spectrum Noir Aqua Pens. The leaves I stamped as normal and added glitter to help them stand out. I made other flowers using Dreamees stamps and coloured them in. I arranged the blooms into the flower pot.
Q What other techniques did you use?
A I also embossed the background and inked over it to add definition. The flower pot is embossed too.
