renaissance texture and textiles

The Renaissance is studded by the names of the artists and architects,
with their creations recorded as great historical events.

Hi again everyone. I know – two posts in one day. Unheard of. You can blame Papertrey Ink and their Stamp-a-faire 2014. I had so much fun traveling through time with them this weekend.

Wax Seal Birthday Greeting

Nicole Heady was our tour guide through the rich textures and textures of the Renaissance period in this blog post: Explore the Renaissance with Nicole Heady.

Renaissance Birthday Card

Nicole showed us a technique I’ve always wanted to try: creating a wax seal with stamps. Her hot tip (sorry, bad pun) is to ink up your stamp with Versamark embossing ink before sticking the stamp in the melted wax. Hold the stamp firmly in place until the melted wax cools. She has a fabulous video for making the seals with a wax candle or embossing powder. It’s Magical.

PTI Renaissance Card

Embossing velvet is a technique I did and taught years ago, but it’s such a fun one I was glad to have the excuse to do it again. I was a little nervous trying it with polymer stamps instead of rubber stamps because the technique involves holding a hot iron over the fabric and stamp. But, it worked like a charm and my new stamp set didn’t melt. Yay! No stamps were harmed in the making of this card.
