China Blue Challenge

I don't need an excuse to use this stamp as i just love it and i thought it was perfect for this challenge.It is the Oriental Poppy from 'Aspects of Design Sheet 1'
Here i have used Starburst stains for the background.Then i stamped using versamark and again used the 'Pigment Powders'. I stamped the poppy again and cut it out and triple embossed it,first using ultra thick and the top layer being moonglow ep 'Midnight sapphire Obsidian' and 'Venus Violet Blue'.I inked the poppy with brilliance pearlescent Blue and stamped into it while still hot.

The Japanese paper on the left is what my Japanese Penfriend sent me. For the centre of the poppy i have used micro beads.

All the embellishment are also from The Stampman

This is truly beautiful Debbie. Triple embossing is great fun when you want to play isn't it. Your blues look so shiny and I like the micro beads for the poppy centre that's really clever.
