Hello Beautiful Card Using a Heat Emboss Resist and Watercolor Technique - Process Video Included
I was inspired by the Hello Beautiful title and technique of this card done by Lime Doodle Design.
I filmed a process video showing how I put this card together if you would like to watch.
Here are the supplies that I pulled for my card.
I cut the hello floral die cut and beautiful sentiment from my Silhouette cameo.
All other items are from my stash of supplies.
The first thing that I did was heat emboss the Simon Says Stamp Drawn Heart Background stamp onto my watercolor paper using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.
After heat setting the embossing powder, I used my aqua pen and started water coloring on top of the embossed hearts.
Since the hearts are embossed, they will resist the watercolor which makes for a pretty effect on the card. I love using this technique and you could do this on a layout or project life card.
I also decided to watercolor the beautiful die cut in black so it would stand out better on the card.
I felt like the card needed something else, so I pulled this ki Memories Doily Dance transparency from my stash. I cut out three of the doily shapes from the sheet to use on my card.
I glued everything down and this is my completed card.
I love this card so much and am so excited to give this to Emily for her birthday!
Thank you so much for visiting me today!
