October’s theme for the Virtual Crafting Challenge has been ‘Lots of Layers’. I have a few medallion stamps but haven’t really done much with them. I had made a Jacob’s Ladder for MIL’s birthday and created a gift box for it to go in, so decided that a medallion would be a good way to finish off the gift box.
Here is the finished piece;
I used the Heart Lace stamp from Creative Expressions and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I coloured the image using Emboss Dual Pens by Tsukineko in colours #36 Lavender, #35 Wisteria and #7 Pansy. The mat areas are just coloured in, the gloss areas had a layer of clear embossing powder applied over the ink whilst it was still wet and then heated. The ribbon in the centre is to act as a pull to easily open the gift box.
