Here are a couple of samples from yesterday's workshop. The same medallion rubber stamp was used for both.

At the top just the centre of the stamp was featured four times by stamping with clear pigment ink onto different coloured card then heat embossing with virdigris powder. Some details were highlighted with Pee Wee glitters then mounted onto yellow, green and cream card.

At the bottom, the whole stamp was used 3 times on alternate layers of white and blue parchment, again with clear pigment ink, but this time heat embossed in silver. Each stamped image was cut to reveal a different layer beneath, then 3D mounted with foam pads or silicone glue which is actually better for transparent papers like parchment/vellum. Finally details were painted with blue Twinkling H2Os, then layered onto 2 tones of blue and embellished with silver peel-off corners and narrow borders.
