New England Stamper: Burnished Background with Shimmer

November 22, 2009

Burnished Background with Shimmer

I bought this stamp back in May at a Stamp Convention and this is the first time it's seen ink - shame on me! 

I created a burnished background (TJs Oct/Nov 09) by heat embossing the image with black e/p and sponging on a variety of inks.  When I was through, I thought it was too nice to hide it away as a background.  So, I highlighted the flowers with some shimmer paint and made the background the main focus of the card.

I plan to give the card to my mum - I hope she likes it.

Happy stamping!
