Anyway, I started by arranging the solid stamps and one of the sentiment stamps from my Winnie & Walter set (Scenery: Bigger, Bang Confetti) and picking them up on the lid of my MISTI. BTW, I wanted my stamped images to be as big as possible, so I used the back of the stamps. I stamped and heat embossed them 3 times to get even coverage of my embossed layer (using Hero Arts clear ep), and then blended black soot distress ink over the entire panel. The embossed images are resisting the ink. You can still see the marbling shimmer through the black distress ink, which gives a fun space-like dimension. If you look closely, you can also see that the ink did not cover up the panel evenly, which is probably due to the shaving cream that I used to create my marbled panel. A surprise bonus! After I finished my ink blending, I carefully wiped the embossed areas to remove any excess ink.
I die cut my panel using a stitched rectangle die (SSS, stitched bundle) and adhered it to a warm yellow card base (SSS) using plenty of adhesive. The sentiment strip was created by heat embossing the label sentiment (Altenew, Label Love) in clear ep onto a snippet of green cardstock and then fussy cutting it. I also added a few star sequins (Studio Calico) and added some black enamel accents (Ranger) to hide the holes in the middle.
