Pink Fresh Studio Rainbow Watercolour Card

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to my card creation where I play along with the "Rainbow" theme for the Wow! Embossing Powder Facebook Fan Group page monthly challenge -  https://www.facebook.com/groups/WOWEPFans/
The technique I have used today is a loose watercolouring method where I coloured outside the lines using rainbow colours from my Kuretake Gansai watercolour set. 
To start my card off I have heat embossed the Pinkfresh Studio Fleur 1 stampset with Metallic Platinum embossing powder on a watercolour cardstock panel. Once I have coloured in the image I have used a Copic marker C-3 to go around the edge of the whole image to make the image slightly pop.
The watercoloured image panel has been foam mounted on a top folding natural ivory card base. 
For the sentiment I have heat embossed with Ebony embossing powder on vellum cardstock which I have adhered down with glue dots.
 To finished the card off I have used rainbow sequins from Kat Scrappiness throughout the card.

Glitter Dragonflies

Today I’m showcasing two beautiful embossing glitters from WOW - Calypso and Zeus.


I chose some Pretty Pink Posh Darling Dragonflies for my card, colouring them first with copics and die cutting them with the coordinating dies. I then used an embossing pen to draw flicks of sticky ink onto the wings (only the half nearest the body to begin with).

I sprinkled WOW Calypso embossing glitter over the ink and heat embossed it with the WOW embossing heat tool. 
I repeated this step for the other half of the wings, this time sprinkling on WOW Zeus embossing glitter. The wings are so sparkly, the perfect look for dragonflies!

I created a sunset scene for my dragonflies, using distress oxides in squeezed lemonade, wild honey and abandoned coral. I framed the scene with a window die from Pretty Pink Posh and some accompanying images from the Darling Dragonflies stamp set. 
I added the dragonflies over the top of the scene with foam tape and stamped a Pretty Pink Posh sentiment to finish the card.

Rainbow in the Dark - an altered paintbrush by Riikka

Hi hi hi! How are you? The August weather is here, sun is shining lower with a golden glow and the nights are turning into velvet ones here in Finland. The summer full of light is almost gone and the darker winter time is lurking around the corner.
I'm a metal head, so when I started to think about the rainbow theme of this month, a song by Dio called "Rainbow in the Dark" started to play in my head. The idea fascinated me, how to do a dark rainbow in a project form. So I decided to rise to the challenge and do a project on black surface with an oil like rainbow glimmer on top. 

For the base I chose to use a paint brush, just like you could paint a rainbow with it. I painted the project black with gesso to create that dark background and then used Glintz and Metalline powders on top to add the colors in. These metallic, shimmering powders with translucent color were perfect to create that sheer shine of color. I'm so happy how the project turned out that you can rea…

Rainbows all the way!

Hi everyone
Its my turn to share with you my Rainbow challenge card for this month!
I love rainbows, just something about them that makes me happy!

So this is what I used to create my 'happy' card.


I used Pink and Main Happy For You stamp set with all those gorgeous different colours of embossing powders - all from the Primary range -  Pink Robin, Marshmallow, Sunset Orange, Lemon, Luscious Lime, Lagoon and Indigo with a bit of beautiful sparkle in the Pearl Gold Sparkle!


I stamped the wording using my stamping platform, starting with Lemon, working up and they down my card blank.


Stamped the sentiment using the amazing WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad, sprinkled over the powder, tap the excess off and heat to reveal the fabulous shiny finish.


I then stamped the 'Happy' from Pink and Main Happy Stamp set and sprinkled over the stunning Pearl Gold Sparkle embossing powder, again using my stamping platform.  I was then able to ink the 'happy' and stamp again, …

Hello! It's Ardyth here from MASKerade and I'm thrilled to be a Creative Guest for the month of August! Heat embossing is a magical part of cardmaking - remember how amazed you were when you first saw the powder melt and transform? I certainly do, and 12 years later, I still get that feeling every time I pull out my heat gun!
Today I used a rainbow of embossing glitters and a simple…
