Colour combo reels with Verity: Teal and Pink




Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! I'm back with another fun colour combo reel this month using the colours peak and teal. These two colours are almost complementary colours - pink is similar to red and the teal is similar to green and both red and green colours are complementary. So when you pick complementary colours you know they will pair well. I'm not usually one to paper piece, but I found this very therapeutic - I needed some time just to switch off, which really helped. But if you're not a paper piece-er, I have a straightforward card to boot! So let's get started. 

Teal and Pink colour combo written Tutorial:

Start off by heat embossing 3 white card panels with the following embossing powders: Rose Quartz (from the GemStone Trio), Raspberry Cream, and Cerulean. I like to use a brayer to apply my embossing ink as this gives a good even coverage of ink. 


Next, die-cut each panel using the Circle Around die and keep all the die-cuts from this. In addition, die-cut one white card panel with this die as well. To make it easier to paper-piece, add a sheet of double-sided adhesive to your card base and adhere the white die-cut over the top. 

Using the other embossed die-cut panels, start to piece in the negative pieces into the white die-cut panel where the adhesive is open. Start off with Rose quartz, mixing this down into Raspberry Cream and the Cerulean. Allow the colours/die-cut pieces to mix and blend. 

To finish the card off, add a sentiment from the Love & Hugs Fab Foilers set which is foiled in Blush Fab Foil and embellish with a few sequins. 

For this other card, we will use the leftover die-cut pieces from the embossed panels. With the Rose Quartz and Raspberry Cream panels, die-cut 1.5 inches from the ends. Repeat this with the Cerulean embossed panel as well. 


Adhere one end of the die-cut Raspberry Cream panel to a white card base. Next, add the middle piece from the Cerulean embossed panel and then top with the end piece from the Rose Quartz embossed panel. 

Again, this card is finished with a sentiment from the Love & Hugs Fab Foilers set which was foiled in Blush Fab Foil. Lastly, embellish with some sequins to finish the card.

Must Try Embossing Technique!

Hi everyone,

It's Colleen and I'm back again Guest Designing for WOW! with another fun way to layer your embossing powders to look like ceramic! 


I first learned of this technique from Jennifer McGuire and have loved it ever since! Below is a step by step tutorial on how to create this card. I've also included a video from my own You Tube channel showing you how to create this in detail. 



1) Create a background card panel using your favorite alcohol inks and Erin Lee Creative White Gloss cardstock. If you don't have that cardstock, use whatever you normally would use for alcohol inks. Set aside to dry. 
2) Die cut Jumbo Tulip from Erin Lee Creative 4 times onto a white card panel. Set 3 of the layers aside and place one layer onto a paper towel. 
3) Apply WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad directly onto the tulip layers.
4) Add WOW! embossing powder over the sticky tulip layers using Independent Trio and Fresh Stem. 
5) Heat set the embossing powder with WOW! Dual Speed Heat tool.
6) Repeat steps 3 - 5 two (2) more times and heat set between each time and allow each layer to dry between. 
7) Adhere the outline of the Jumbo Tulip over the alcohol inked background card panel. 
8) Glue the white layers of the tulip set (aside from earlier) together and add the embossed layers to the top of the layers. This will create dimenion to your tulip and help it pop off the page! 
9) Adhere each of the tulip parts inside of the outline and allow to dry fully. I suggest you put an acrylic block over them until fully dry. 
10) Finish with a sentiment from the Rainbow Flower stamp from Erin Lee Creative.

Below is a close up photo of how shiny and ceramic-like those layers look! You can use this technique for almost any design element. The key is to be sure the paper you use doesn't warp. And, let each layer dry before adding another layer. Get playful by mixing embossing powders together too! 




I'm so happy you joined me today! To shop the items in this post, click on the item description. You can also shop directly at WOW! Embossing Powder or Erin Lee Creative.  I hope you have fun with layering your embossing powders on your favorite design elements! 

Colleen
