I received another lovely texture stamp from Darkroom Door called, 'Star'. I set to work on two small square canvases. First I primed them with warm white, beige and white paints. Then I heat embossed the 'star' texture using a pale pink embossing powder.
For the canvas above, I embossed two areas on the canvas using sections of the 'Star' texture stamp. I then painted a little more paint over the embossed areas, rubbed some of it back with a cloth and other areas with sand paper. I then added a little maroon ink to add more depth to the background. Finally I stamped a floral image from Darkroom Door's 'Friendship Flowers' stamp set using Distress embossing powder and embellished the piece with lace, velvet, a pearl bead and vintage text.
For this next canvas, once it was primed, I embossed the entire 'Star' texture stamp with pink embossing powder and painted over it. I then rubbed it back with sand paper. Next I stamped smaller sections of the 'Star' texture stamp and a different floral image from 'Friendship Flowers' using Distress embossing powder and embellished it with laces, a pearl and vintage text.
The 'Star' texture stamp creates wonderful shabby chic textural effects! It's gorgeous!
