Art Gallery, Thank You, Black Magic Stamping Technique

I found a fun technique to do today. You can see the post on Pinterest by clicking here.  I thought I might have done this technique before. I recall it was with colored pencils but I could be wrong.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside.

I took a piece of Melon Mambo card stock and die cut it with the 3" x 4-3/8" for the layer and the Basic Black piece was die cut using the third largest stitched rectangle dies.  I put this piece in my Stamparatus and lined up the large flower from the "Art Gallery" set. I stamped it using Whisper White craft ink. You need to let it dry before you stamp over it again.  I used Flirty Flamingo ink to stamp the flower again. This is why you need to put it in your Stamparatus. You need to line up the image.  I did use my heat tool to dry the inks faster. 

There were no instructions on how to do this so this is how I did it. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to add more Whisper White ink for the next step detail but it made sense to me to do it. So I inked it up in the Whisper White and heated up to dry it. Then I stamped the Poppy Parade ink. I used my heat tool to dry it too.  

Next I stamped the leaves and stem using the craft ink and I heat set it to dry. Then I stamped Granny Apple Green over it.  I inked it twice to get it dark enough.  I heat set it to dry it.

Then I stamped the middle piece of the flower using the same method. I used Crushed Curry ink. Once it was dry I used my Tombow glue to add some gold foil. You put the glue down and let it dry. It remains sticky and once it's dry you add the gold flakes. I just pressed them in place and then used a stipple brush to brush away the flakes that didn't stick.  

The words are from the same set and were stamped using Versa Mark and then embossed with gold embossing powder. I heat set it and it turned out beautifully.

I taped the rectangles together and set them in place using Dimensionals.

It didn't turn out the way I thought it would but I do like how it looks.

Thank you SO very much for taking the time today to stop by and have a look,                                      Wanda

Such a lovely flower! It almost looks like it was colored with chalks.
