Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge - Monoprinting

Morning all and welcome to my new followers, I really appreciate your support and interest in what I do.

I Subscribe to Craft Stamper Magazine and noticed that they have a new Challenge, this month the Challenge is to make a Monoprint using an acrylic block.

For my entry I used Acrylic paint on a Slim Jim block.  When the print was dry I stamped using the Stampendous Ranunculus Stamp.  Out of a lighter part of the print I cut out the flowers, embossed them using clear Ultra fine embossing powder (unfortunately the lovely glaze doesn't show up too well in my picture).  I added a faux stitching stamp as a frame and a die cut butterfly from the same print which I embossed in silver.  I hadn't used this technique before but really enjoyed it.

  5. Fab card Yvonne, background printed great and I love the flowers. I think that faux stitching stamp is for me, I just explained to another lady that I've got a brand new sewing machine with the plug still wrapped up, I'm scared. .
    Good luck this month in the Craft Stamper Take it, Make it challenge.
