I’ll dare to say that any stamper would be tempted to stamp decorative edges on cards, picture frames, scrapbook pages.. etc with the large floral image from Zen Floral Stamp Set by Honey Bee .
The image is beautiful as it is but why not twist it a little bit to fit the shape of an edge die and make something a bit more dynamic?
The image also has small intricate details and I thought it was a very bad idea to heat emboss it with black embossing powder but I still did it. I was curious to see how this “new detailed powder” yet to be released by Tonic Studios would work on these kinds of images and ….
Pictures don’t lie! You can even see the small embossed dots in the flower petals.
The powder covered the image smoothly and beautifully . Mess free for a black powder and these detail powders will be available soon in gold, white, copper, silver and clear as well.
Top Tip: use anti-static powder (embossing body – powder tool) before stamping with the Versamark clear ink and applying the powder.
In the picture below you can see how I lay down the stamp to get the perfect fit to that specific die. You can use a stamping platform or “very thin” clear blocks to get a better impression in one go.
Once the stamp is in place I simply placed a piece of cardstock ( 14×9.5 cm) , I applied anti- static powder and I stamped using clear versamark ink and the black detailed powder I talked about above.
More Tips :
- Use a sheet of funky foam underneath the cardstock to get a better impression.
- If you want to try twisted stamping with clear blocks use a slim block or a very thin clear block as they are flexible and they will help you to get that perfect stamped image in one go.
I also cut the word “wonderful” out of a mirror card called Craftperfect Glossy black – High Gloss by Tonic Studios and to complete the sentiment I used some of the words of Bee-You-Tiful Stamp Set by Honey Bee Stamps.
I glued the panel on craft foam and I pasted on a stamped piece of smooth cardstock, Then I pasted the panel on a C6 black card base and I embellished with Mermaid Sequinsby Honey Bee stamps
