We have a challenge at A Blog Named Hero called "New to me" - use something new, or use a technique that you haven't used before. I chose to use new stamps from Right at Home stamps, along with a couple of Hero Arts stencils. I used the Crossing Waves stencil (which is new to me) for the background, and I used the Glorious Petal Stencil for the pattern on the teacup. I coloured the cup from the "Cup of Joy" set with Copic markers first, then added the pattern over the top with a white gel pen. I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the "How have you bean" set onto some vellum, and wrapped it around my panel.
Can you see the shiny swirls above the teacup? I added the swirls of steam with Versamark ink, then embossed them with Hero Arts clear embossing powder.
Thanks heaps to our collaboration partner for January, Right at Home Stamps!
