My recent card featuring watercoloring against a dark background for the February Theme Challenge seemed to have been very popular! As a result, I've created two more cards featuring this technique (I first saw Yana Smakula use this technique, you can see her post here).
For my background, I used an embossing folder by Taylored Expressions and dry embossed Blueberry cardstock by Martha Stewart. Be sure to edge your image with the color you plan to mount it on. I splattered the background with Tsukineko Rose Gold Sheer Shimmer and popped it up on blue craft foam onto a note card made with the same cardstock.
To finish, I added the sentiment heat embossed in Rose Glintz, onto black cardstock and trimmed out, then popped up on foam tape.
My next card uses the Santana Rose stamp by Gina K, heat embossed in Mayan Glintz. You can see the subtle difference in the video. I watercolored it in the exact same way and then edged it in the navy blue ink (Desert Night) and trimmed it out.
This time I used heat embossing on my background as well - I used the same Blueberry cardstock, and heat embossed the Gina K Designs Rose Lace background stamp in Mayan Glintz, trimming it down to 4 x 5.25". I popped the rose on top and then heat embossed the sentiment in WOW! Opaque Bright White on black cardstock.
Don't these powders look different depending on wheather they're heat embossed on white, navy or black ! Definitely staples for your stash.
