Hello Lovelies! STAMPtember®! gave us TEN Embossing Folders and I did detailed ink blending on a few of them. This is my second attempt and as I did with the Brilliant Coneflower, I wanted the flowers to glow. You will have to let me know if I succeeded.
The Plentiful Poppies Embossing Folder looked like it would be a little more of a challenge to color because it is bursting with flowers, but I promise you it was fun and I have oodles of photos to walk us through it!
Exactly as I said with the Brilliant Coneflower project, "you really have to worry about being precise with this project; we are going for a dreamy effect and a lot of softness, we want our flowers to glow".
Let's take a look at the key supplies:
