Emboss Resist Watercolor Card – Love You

Hi everyone! Today’s card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

The theme for this week’s challenge is ANYTHING GOES! (my favorite since I can completely do whatever I want) 🙂

I tried a technique I learned from the last Online Card Class – Watercolor for Card Makers. Here is my card —

Love You

I started this card with a panel of 90 lb Strathmore watercolor paper cut to 4 x 5 1/4. I stamped the Recollection Tapestry background stamp I got at my Michael’s with VersaMark ink. Then I heat embossed it with some Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I used different shades of green and blue watercolor for the panel. I wet the entire surface first and applied the different colors horizontally. The embossed part resisted the watercolor to reveal the design.

For the sentiment, I one of the tags from the Memory Box Clasic Tags die and stamped and embossed the Love You sentiment from the Love You stamp set from Simon Says Stamp with Hero Arts white embossing powder on Bazzill Licorice Twist card stock. I used some black twine to attach the tag and embellished using black enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye. I finished the card by attaching it to a Bazzill Licorice Twist card base with foam tape.

All the supplies are listed below.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading!

 

I used the Recollection Tapestry backdrop set which is only available at Michael’s so I am not going to be able to link it below.
