Aloha friends! Today I'm playing with this fun wood mounted stamp from Hero Arts called Pinata. Are you a fan of wood mounted stamps? I think I will always have a special place in my heart for them. This one especially because it is just too fun!
I thought of watercoloring it, or copic coloring the image, but then I thought using my embossing powders would be fun. I first inked up the image with Versamark ink and then stamped on black cardstock. I used a variety of Zing! embossing powders in rouge, apricot, butter, leaf and wave. Each color I spooned on with a palette knife to get just a small amount of powder in small sections of the image.
I really liked how striking it looked against the black. I wanted to enhance the colors so I took some matching cardstock and die cut the edges using Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Border. I thought it was a little plain once I glued the layers, so I decided to stamp an older background stamp from Hero Arts called Life of Party Words inked in Wet Cement. Added a bit of twine and some enamel dots and adhered slightly skewed to my card front.
That's it for me today! Have a fabulous Monday and MAHALO for stopping by!!
