Welcome My Friends,
I am sharing with you a brand new stamp set by Sparkle N Sprinkle. They have a beautiful collection of stamps and this set is no exception. It is called "Rose
Heart" and it is simply stunning.
Sparkle N Sprinkle Supply List:
This set is actually designed to do multi
step stamping but I decided to use my alcohol markers with it instead.
See tutorial below.
Step 1: Using your lightest marker think
about where your going to want your shadows and lay down the maker in
those areas sort of like a road map. In this case I have colored in
where the flower petals are folding inward away from the sun.
Step 2: Using your mid tone marker begin
in the shadows but do not pull the color all the way out to where the
lightest shadow is.
Step 3: With your darkest marker color in

one in front of the other so a top petal will cast a shadow onto a petal
Step 4: Now we will repeat reversing the
colors working dark to light. Since we just added the darkest we will
use the midtone in this step. You will lightly extend the darkest shadow

Step 5: Now we do the same thing using
the lightest color. Drag the medium color towards the lightest. I am
purposely leaving the tips of the flower white.
Step 6: Sometimes when you go from dark
to light you lost some of the wonderful contrast created by your darkest
marker so in this step I have gone back into the shadows using the
Step 7: Here I just softened the lines
left from the darkest marker. Just barely blending it at the tips where

added Berry Red Flocking into the very deepest ares of the flower. It
gives it a nice softly raised feel to the rose and will awe your
For a finishing touch I used the
sentiment from the Rose Heart stamp set and heat embossed it using the
Black Detail Embossing Powder. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Autumn Red.
I simply colored in the heart with a marker as well.
