Michael Strong Technique Thursday

When I was shoping I found
this cute hanger for the home
(Dutch ladies: it is available in Action
and only € 0,99).
When i saw this, I knew I had to alter it
with my Michael Strong stamps.
This is what you need:
1 house stamp
1 heart stamp
Viva Decor inka gold colors
spray bottle with water
black/ white embossing powder
heat tool
I prepared the paper with Viva Decor inka cold colors.
There are two ways of doing this.
For the first way you take some colors of inka gold
out of the pot and onto your craft sheet.

Spray with water amd mix a little with a brush.

Take your paper direct on the craft sheet
and pick up the paint until you have covered your paper.

This is tghe finished paper.
Leave it to dry.

The other way is the dry way.
Take two pots on color that you want to use.

You can use your finger or a sponge
to color the paer with. Start with the
lightest color.

And then ad the next color.

Cover your complete oiece of paper.

With the dry way you can stamp and
emboss right away on the paper.

For the wet way you have to either dry the paper
with your heat tool or just wait until it is dry.

Here is the finished project.

You see I embossed the house in black
and the heart in white.
In the heart of the flowers I glued little gemstones.
There are also red gemstones on the heart.
Thanks for looking!

Have a creative day!

So beautiful, Hetty! Thanks for the tutorial! I have some inka gold and forget to use it! Didn't know (or remember?) that it can be used with water and paint brush. Love the effects you created!
