Large Beloved Carnation Collage

Hi Everyone, Robyn here. Happy Thursday to each of you! I hope you’re having an enjoyable day. I’ve been busy packing…and packing…and packing, but couldn’t help but stop and have a little creative time away from it all. Just 18 days before we fly back to the States - can't wait!!

I’ve been wanting to grab the new Beloved Carnation Collage stamp from I Brake for Stamps that I got back in February and experiment with it a bit, so that’s just what I did today. I’m pretty new to collage coloring, but it was fun to just sit and play with ink. I stamped and embossed the collage stamp onto watercolor paper and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I did the same with a piece of vellum. I trimmed them both out, not sure which I’d like better. I used my Aqua Painter and ink pads to color in the image and then trimmed the flower out of the vellum one to add a bit more dimension by layering it on the one that I water colored.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

  1. This is gorgeous, Robyn. Embossing has always been one of my favorite things, always provides that 'elegant' look to your artwork. I love your embellishments. Beautifully created. Hugs, Gayle.
