I'm so excited (and also a bit intimidated!) about this Blog Hop - when I discovered Jay was to be our Guest Stamper I actually squealed - because I just LOVE his work (always imaginative, beautifully executed and brimming with inspiration) and have been following Jay and Barry at Mitosu Crafts for a long time. So it was extremely difficult to choose which amazing piece to CASE!  Eventually I chose this one because it would lead me to do something new for me.


And this is what I did with it.
www.thecraftythinker.com.au, Flirty Flowers, Black & White card, #thecraftythinker, Stampin Up Australia Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
The floral images are from the Flirty Flowers stamp set


I clear heat embossed the centre flower and masked it before stamping the other image three times with Whisper White Craft ink.  I then removed the mask and, using a paintbrush, coloured the centre flower with the same white craft ink, building up layers of pigment.

The greeting is white heat embossed.
If I were to do this again, I would stamp off the image directly behind the centre flower. 

Tip:
As always when using white craft ink, care needs to be taken to avoid smudging as you work because it takes a long time to dry. 

Thanks for following our blog hop. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Stephanie Fischer - so click on the next name in the list to ensure that you don't miss out of seeing any of the blogs and the amazing inspiration they contain.

'Til next time
