Guest Blogger: Donna Salzar, Coloring with Stamp/Die Combos

Hello everyone! Donna Salazar here with a quick photo tutorial for you.

I’m using one of my new Stamp/Die Combo sets today to show you how easily you can create a perfectly cut out, colored, and stamped image for your projects. The image I’ll show you today was used on a canvas that also has some of my other new products.

You can see the photo tutorial for the flower that was made using my Bitty Blossoms and NEW Big Blossom (designed to coordinate with the Bitty Blossoms) on my blog here: http://www.donnasalazar.com/#!New-Spellbinders-Products/vex72/571d4a9d0cf228a96f117a4d

Start by stamping the image with a pigment ink (Mix’d Media Inx used) then sprinkle with embossing powder and heat set. The raised embossed edge will make coloring the image super easy peasy!

Place die over the stamped image and use tape to hold in place.

I used the Platinum machine so I was able to die cut the flower and branch dies that comes in the set with 3 layers of white card stock at the same time that I die cut the Flower Bouquet stamped image. Place the dies face down on your cutting plate with the 2nd clear plate on top and run through the Platinum. You can also cut these separately if you have a smaller machine.

I colored the flowers and branch die cuts with a combination of my Gold and Blue Pigment Powders mixed with Girlie Grunge Art Medium and water to make a sparkly colored glaze.

I used the same glaze to color the leaves and stems of the stamped image.

I mixed my Wine Pigment Powder with Girlie Grunge Art Medium and water to make the glaze for the flowers.

And this is the finished image on the canvas.

And this is a photo of the entire canvas.
