Hi Creative Friends!
Whew! It has been a busy summer which is making it challenging for me to find time to craft! I am glad to report I have something new to share with you today, and it includes fun with watercolor and pretty, copper metallic embossing!
I had only recently received the Modern Heart stamp set and it will definitely be one of my favorites! To make this card I started by stamping the geometric heart with Versamark ink on watercolor paper. I covered that with Copper Embossing powder. I heat embossed that and let it cool. I then used my Aqua Painter and started at the top of the heart with Bermuda Bay ink. In the center of the heart I added Coastal Cabana and at the bottom of the hear I used Pool Party. I lightly used the Aqua Painter to meld the colors next to each other so you could not see an ink line. Once it had the appearance I liked I fussy cut the heart out. I cut a 3 3/4 x 5 inch piece of Whisper White ink and stamped with another stamp from the Modern Heart set using Pool Party Ink. I then used the small geometric heart stamp from the set and Versamark ink to randomly stamp hearts on the paper. These were also heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder. I stamped the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I layered the stamped paper onto a 3/4 X 5 1/4 piece of Copper Foil paper and a card base of Bermuda Bay cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. I then added some Clear Epoxy Droplets to give it a little more flare. The heart was adhered to the paper with dimensionals.
This is a very simple way to add some watercolor into your life. Have you tried watercoloring yet? It makes me feel a bit like an artist!
