How I used 3 stamps sets to make a background

Hello my sweets! I'm stamping! I'm using paper, ink, and stamps!! That seems a rather redundant statement I know, but the simple art of stamping images onto paper has been lacking in my studio as of late. I have some free time, that I haven't had in months, and in addition to cleaning up clutter, I scheduled in some studio time with the intention of reconnecting with my stamps.

To make this gold embossed oh so sweet background, I smashed up 3 different stamps from 3 sets! Why? I loved the donut, but all donuts would have been a bit boring I think, so I pulled out a set called small packages from Verve stamps, and little hearts from SRM coffee time. 

I stamped small sections at a time with versamark ink on multimedia paper, I embossed in gold and when I had a background full of confections, I colored them in with gellato's and a fine wet paintbrush.

The donuts were topped with glossy accents, and a few microbeads then a splash of sequins....beacuse sequins!!!!!!!!! I stamped the border, and greeting and cut them with the coordinating die, and popped them with foam tape.

Here is a shot using a flash setting, you can see the gold embossing, and just how pretty it really is!!!

This is just darling! Love those sweet little glazed donuts. Hooray for paper, stamps and ink time. I'm hoping to get a little of that in sometime soon, too.
