Hello and thanks for joining me.
I mentioned my ‘give it a go’ list a short while ago and now I’ve ticked another box on it, the emboss resist technique. I combined this technique with a stamp set I’ve not used for a little while; Tropical Chic…
I made my normal card base with Very Vanilla card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm.
I cut a piece of Watercolour Paper to measure 10 x 14 cm and stamped it with the 3 leaf stamps from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Versamark ink, added some Clear Stampin’ Emboss powder and heat set it.
I added some Old Olive ink to an acrylic block and then mixed it with a little water. I did the same with Granny Apple Green ink and added both colours to my Watercolour Paper with an Aquapainter. I blotted any ink that sat on top of the heat embossed design with some kitchen roll.
Before adding this panel to my card I wrapped some Linen Thread around it and tied it in a knot at the front. I cut some Old Olive vellum with my Starburst punch and added this to the card under the thread.
Using the Tropical Dies I cut the outer and inner leaves from Granny Apple Green and Old Olive card to give them a two tone look.
I used sponge daubers to add Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick ink to the flower stamp and stamped onto Very Vanilla card and then die cut it. I also added some Wink of Stella to the flower for a little bit of shimmer.
I stamped the sentiment onto Very Vanilla card with Crumb Cake ink, cut it into a banner at one end and added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I rather like the mix of textures with the embossing, watercolour paper, vellum, thread and die cuts. I hope you do too.
