Big Hello # 2

This big hello stamp is from the aptly named Creative Play Stamps set Big Hello! First, I dipped it into VersaMark and embossed it with SU! Detail Black EP. I always use detail black. It's a little more expensive, the pot is smaller, but I like the results better. Those of you who are accomplished watercolorists may not need to emboss before they wc. I find that the embossing makes up for my lack of painting skill a little! I colored with various markers and re-inkers. Then I went over the whole thing with my Stardust pen. I layered it onto a piece of Basic Gray Two Scoops. Then I went around the primary image making dots with my clear glaze pen. I then sprinkled with BTAI glitter in Lion's Mane. That layer went onto another piece of BGTS, and finally onto a Barely Banana base. I added the ticket corner punches, some Making Memories gems, Prima leaves & flowers, some sequin flowers, and finally three MM gem brads! YFL!
