Bouquet of Thanks for Monday Montage

Come on in and look through today's Monday Montage post. For this hop I'm sharing projects from my latest #useitup! "Bouquets" Class. What's #useitup!? It's one of my classes that I offer monthly where I dive in and use up papers and ribbons and embellishments. You see I love SU! products, but I am not into hoarding them. I use them up.

This class featured the Bouquet of Thanks Stamp and the Vellum Layering Designs. I also included the Stitched Rectangle Dies and three varying techniques.

Technique #1 - Watercolor Pencils Double Stamp
  • Stamp image using a Stamparatus with Jet Black Stazon Ink
  • Leave stamped paper in place
  • Color image with Watercolor Pencils Asst. 1
  • Blend colored pencil with a Water Painter
  • Once dry stamp again to crisp up the details of the image
  • Now the piece can be removed from the Stamparatus

Technique #2 - Emboss Resist with Milk Paint, Stampin' Blends, and Watercolor
  • Stamp and emboss image with White Embossing Powder
  • Paint the image with Whisper White Ink and a Water Painter
  • Once dry carefully color the stems and leaves with Old Olive Stampin' Blends
  • Watercolor the banner and flowers with Melon Mambo Ink and a Water Painter

Technique #3 - Enhanced Clear Embossing
  • Stamp image on Vellum Layering Design Paper with Cajun Craze Ink
  • Heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder
  • Turn paper over and color the flowers and leaves with Pale Papaya and Old Olive Stampin' Blends
  • Stamp image a second time with Petal Pink Ink on Basic White Cardstock
  • Cut out the banner and flowers then align and glue to the back of the vellum: this step enhances the main images
