Timeless Textures Workshop

I hope you liked the first of the cards from my technique class. Todays card uses watercolour card and heat embossing.

The card size used is A6. The base is Bermuda Bay with a matt layer of Whisper White. 
  • The watercolour card is 2" wide and cut to length once embossed and inked.
  • Firstly using an embossing buddy, wipe across the watercolour card, this will stop excess embossing powder sticking to the cad a spoiling your design. 
  • Next using a Versamark ink pad, ink the flourish stamp from the timeless textures stamp set onto the watercolour card. 
  • Then dust with clear embossing powder. Shake away excess powder and gently heat emboss. tip any excess back into the pot and put to one side.
  • Take a drop of each ink and put onto a glass mat or tile. 
  • Using plain water, brush across the watercolour paper sparingly. 
  • Now add a little water to each of the drops of ink and starting with soft sky, brush across the watercolour card. Add more water to the ink or card as necessary and the more ink you add the more vibrant the end result. 
  • Once you are happy with the result, dry using a heat gun. 
  • Matt the watercolour card firstly onto Whisper White cardstock and then Bermuda Bay.
  • Finally adhere onto the front of your card base and embellish with butterflies and rhinestones.
  • The sentiment used is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set and stamped with Bermuda Bay Ink.
Tomorrow I will show you the third technique we used once again using three different inks.
