If you know me, you know I love Harry Potter! So when I saw this stamp set from Brutus Monroe that contained a gorgeous floral cluster and a sentiment quote from JK Rowling, I knew it had to be mine!
I stamped the floral image with (new to me) Brutus Monroe’s detailed ink. To test out how this inked, I used an acrylic block and only inked it up one time. Normally, I always use my Mini Misti because I am known for not fully inking up my stamp fully. LOL! But to tell out how affective the detailed ink pad was, I wanted to use a regular acrylic block. To my surprise, the impression stamped perfectly with just one stamping. I didn’t need to reink and restamp. The fine details from the floral cluster were all captured with this ink! For an added bonus, this ink pad is also waterproof! I pulled out my MissionGold watercolors and brought the florals to life.
The sentiment. I know right? It screams LAUREL!!!! HAHAHA! I LOVE IT! It’s an added bonus he illustrated a beautiful floral image to go with the sentiment… There are other great sentiments in this set, but the JK Rowling sentiment is what grabbed my attention – go figure.
I did add a little bit of shimmer to the florals with my Spectrum Noir clear glitter overlay pen and some splatters with the same MissionGold watercolors as a finishing touch!
Embossing Powders: I have to also give a huge thumbs up to the Brutus Monroe embossing powders. They are unique because once melted, they give the look of a very polished/smooth metal. The results are quite stunning….
