Hello, everyone! I’m back with another video using our Blooming Peony Garden background stamp and Zig Markers.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by gold heat embossing this gorgeous image onto watercolor paper (Canson 140lb). I used a Speedball Baren tool to get a nice and crisp impression from my stamp. Then I scribbled several zig markers onto my embossed image (Light Violet, Light Carmine, Dark Pink, Green and Light Green). Next, I spritzed a little bit of clean water onto my panel which activated all the beautiful ink. Then I sped up the drying process by using my heat tool so that I could start die cutting my sentiment.

*I learned this technique from Catherine Pooler which she applied to our original Peony Garden stamp a while back. The Scribble Technique term was later coined by Regina Cooper Bailey from the Stamp Junkies Facebook Group.*

I used our Hello word die from our Bold General Greetings Wordplate die collection. I die cut the hello right into the watercolor panel and additional die cut the hello on black cardstock. Next, I used the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle Small Die collection to create a stitched panel that was slightly smaller than A2 size.

Next, I used our scripty Fabulous word die to cut out four die cuts which I layered over each other to create a dimensional word embellishment.

Once all of my die cutting was complete, I adhered my watercolor panel onto a top folding, horizontal A2 cardbase using our strong double sided adhesive sheets. Then I popped in all of my black hello die cut letters into the negative space in my watercolored panel. Finally, I mounted my fabulous word die cut embellishment and added our clear dew drops.

That’s all from me today! Thanks for stopping by!
