Squares with clear embossing powder and mica chips … looks like glass!

2-1/2 inch squares … there were so many nice choices it was hard to pick only two rubber stamps …  http://www.carmensveranda.com/  

square:  pear

square: pear

square: bird

square: bird

 

These are really pretty easy to do.  Stamp image with Momento ink.  Color image using Distress inks and the Cut & Dry pen nibs; heat set.  Rub Distress ink antique linen pad directly onto image; emboss with clear embossing powder/heat set.  While still hot, add more second layer embossing powder/heat.  While still hot, sprinkle mica chips; add more embossing power/heat tool. Really cool!

Van Gogh and Poe — two of my favorite guys

check out these stamps at:   http://www.carmensveranda.com/      I woke up designing these “postage stamp cards” … how appropriate is the Van Gogh quote:  ‘I dream my paintings, then I paint my dreams’.  Makes me smile!!!
