Another new stamp to die for today this time one that matches the Wellington shape from the new Australia collection designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.
This is the new Scripted Clematis stamp which Here I have simply embossed with CS True white detail embossing powder onto cobalt foundation card. I cut the centre out by hand (fussy cut) around all the detailed flowers and foliage so that the sentiment stamped in cobalt on white was visible.
Next I cut the matching outside die form coconut white foundation card and embossed the piece, whilst still in the with the quilted circles pin point embossing folder. I saved lightly around the embossing using the same archival cobalt ink and a smoothie. I also studied the centre of the circles with 5mm white stick on pearls before tying a bow of navy and natural jute string around the base to balance the design.
