Love Blossoms Blog Hop

Welcome to our Love Blossoms Hop for March! This stamp set is SO beautiful and you'll see lots of great ideas for using this double stamp set of images and sentiments!

If you've come from the blog of Wendy Kessler you're doing fine. Click on the link in each post to hop to the next blog.

Recently I've seen this technique and decided I had to get on the bandwagon started by consultant Laura Beacham. It's surprisingly simple and oh so fun. You white emboss your image on black cardstock. Using ShinHan markers I colored the white embossing to get this colorful bouquet. On the first card I also added some Black Shimmer Brush on the red flower and larger leaves. When you pick the marker colors use bold colors as they turn out as a lighter version on the embossed image. ShinHan markers are alcohol based and that's why you can color on top of the embossing.

Love Blossoms is our special for March. You can get the stamp set alone or as part of a Workshop Kit. Either way it's one of the most beautiful kits out there. It's only available during March so don't wait!
