Embossing Over Watercolor
Topic: Stamping

I was watching some video tutorials on my favorite blogs the other day and ran across a technique I had not used before. If you want to see the original, visit Gina K Designs at http://stamptv.ning.com/video/embossing-over-watercolor for a technique she calls embossing over watercolor.

 

Start with watercolor paper and scribble three values of a color where you want flowers, then three values of green where you will stamp the leaves.

Spritz the surface with water and let the colors bleed. When it gets where you want it to be, use a heat gun to dry the piece.

Ink a solid flower head with Versamark embossing ink and stamp over the colored areas, Ink solid leaf with Versamark ink and stamp over the green areas. Cover with clear embossing powder and set with heat gun.

Use a foam tool and dark ink to sponge over the surface. The embossing will resist the ink but you can buff any extra off with a soft cloth or paper towel.

With the first one I made, I cut the piece in two and made separate cards out of them.

The first is shown here

I used walnut ink for the dark background. I made a base card with a green floral and strips of coordinating papers.

I added twine and a little tag before popping the focal up on foam tape.
