Japanese Mum

Welcome back everyone! I just received this set today and couldn’t wait to play with it! This is the Japanese Mum from Altenew. I love the layering guides that come in the packages. It helps so much when lining up these stamps.

I stamped my mums onto Neenah Solar White 110 lb card stock using Black Amalgam Ink, Soft Stone and Slate from Gina K Designs. The leaves are stamped in Black Amalgam ink for the outline and then Key Lime, Lucky Clover and Grass Green.

I used the coordinating die to cut out my images with my Gemini Jr.

For my front panel, I’m using a piece of Black Onyx card stock. First, I heat embossed my sentiment, which is also from the Japanese Mum set, using Gina K Designs Embossing Ink. I sprinkled with Brutus Monroe Gilded Embossing powder and heat set.

Next, I flicked on speck of gold paint from my Gansai Tambi set. Once the specks were dry, I added my images with Gina K Connect Glue. The top flower is popped up with foam for dimension.

It’s rainy and dreary here today which is probably why I went with the gray/black combo but I absolutely love how it came out.
