Shimelle True Stories
I tried using the mirror stamping technique but I couldn't get a good impression stamping it on watercolor paper. I stamped the cup on the back of a larger clear stamp, on an acrylic block, and on a clear plastic. I practiced on regular paper first, and I got good impressions of the mirrored cup. But when I tried it on watercolor paper, it barely leaves an impression. I think it could be the texture of the watercolor paper that does not allow a good impression. I also used a light colored ink to stamp the cups. Maybe it will be different if it is a dark colored ink. What do you think?
The cups are stamped using a light colored ink. I watercolored the cups. I outlined the stem of the cup using a dark colored marker. I stamped the saucer and dots. I stamped the coffee bean twice to create a heart. I added more details by adding glaze dots on the stamped dots. Using a white gel pen, I drew lines and a dot on the hearts.
I directly stamped the sentiment to the background paper. I applied clear embossing powder then heat set it. I created an embossed paper before I die cut the word always to add to the embellishment.
I applied Wink of Stella and added a dot of Glossy Accents to the hearts.
