Faux Cloisonne

 The Oriental Stamp Art technique challenge for January was Faux Cloisonne.
  I added the challenge to a Swap using a postage stamp (image from Google). I stamped the Apple Blossom image and embossed it in Queens Gold EP onto Vellum. I colored in the image using Twinkling H2O's.
   The real technique uses darker cardstock for the base or magazine pages- but I wanted to use plain vellum.....
I love the shimmer on the apple blossoms : )

Challenges:

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly this is gorgeous - love the small images, but they are only an accent to the fabulous embossing on vellum - that is stunning!
