Blog Hop Magenta - Day 1

Welcome to a week of inspiration and creativity with the Magenta Design Team! We are excited to share with you our latest collection and of course our artists are here to share their techniques with you, just hop to their blogs to learn more about their creations!

Vous êtes invités à une semaine d’inspiration et de créativité avec la Design Team Magenta! Nous sommes heureux de partager avec vous notre dernière collection et bien entendu nos artistes sont là pour partager avec vous leurs techniques, suivez les liens vers leurs blogues pour en apprendre plus sur leurs créations.

Ok let the fun begin and enjoy the blog hop!  

Step by step instructions:

Stamp the Delicate Leaf branch with gesso on a piece of watercolor paper. Let it dry by air or use your heatgun.

Spray some water onto your paper and apply the following distress stain colors randomly: peacock feathers, spiced marmalade, peeled paint. Spray some extra water to let the colors mix. The gesso will react as a resist. Dry it with your heatgun and too much ink you can carefully depp off with a kitchen towel.

Once completey dry stamp the Setaria with Versafine vintage sepia and clear heat emboss it. Stamp again the Setaria with versamark, slightly next to the first image. Heat emboss this with white embossing powder.

Ink up the multilingual Happy Birthday stamp with distress ink crushed olive randomly on your background. Remove the ink from the embossed and gesso area with a damp cloth or baby wipe.

On a separate piece of white cardstock stamp the text with Archival coffee.
Adhere everything onto a white card base.

I have used the new released Magenta stamps :

Inderdaad een supermooie kkaart. Wel vind ik het een beetje jammer dat de tekst alleen in het engels en frans is en niet in het nederlands.
Fijne dag en groetjes Marja
