Ashley chose the largest size Paper Positioner and used a 7 1/2″ piece of white cardstock as her canvas. To begin, she blended alternating colours of Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg, and Chipped Sapphire on just one of the stencil (Barrel 2) from the Sacred Lotus Stencil set, jumping from one heart symbol to another (ie. turning her stencil at 22.5° at each rotation); while leaving one out of every four rotations blank to later position her heat embossed petals.
After she’s done all her ink blending, she used Versamark ink and added silver embossing powder on the remaining petals. I just love the shimmery look with the heat embossing!
Anja used a card panel of size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and it was die cut using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays. She picked up Barrel 2 and ink blended Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink in the first round by making references to the outlined hearts on the Stencils 360°TM BASE. Then for her second round of inking, she blended Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink over the same Barrel 2 by making reference to the solid hearts.
This alone, created a beautiful floral overlapping geometric pattern!
She then further applied applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Black Ash with a Nuvo Blending Sponge, over Barrel 1. This bold black really created a the perfect contrast!
