Water Coloured and Embossed Florals

Welcome

Just a quick post tonight to scoot into the #TheDailyMarker30Day Colouring challenge


I wanted to make a card in a hurry as an encouragement, and on looking through my "Oops This Didn't Work Out" box, I came across this background made a year or more ago....  there was a white panel on the bottom right, but ended up using that as dimensional layer.


I found the stamp I had used to create the clear embossed background, coloured it with markers, spritzed it and stamped it using my Misti, and then repeated, using a slightly bigger piece of card than the original...

Once I was happy and the image dried, I then stamped over it with versamark ink and clear embossed 


I found the sentiment from a magazine set, and repeated the same process, then cut that into a banner


This is an angled shot to show how the clear embossing catches the light.  There is a wee bit of iridescent powder in the background embossing. 


I stamped the  ODBD scripture stamp on the inside in a slightly paler mauve ink.
A few rhinestones for highlights and it was ready to go.

I am linking this to:
I love heat embossing as it is one of the first techniques I learnt, and it is so versatile

Very pretty card Maxine. Great way to use the stamp in different ways. Looks so pretty coloured in purple and green for your white panel, and also lovely used for the background with heat embossing. The iridescent powder does add beautiful shimmer. xx

Hello dear Maxine,

This is such a sweet and charming card and what I like most about it is the text inside. Beautiful.

Always so much to learn from you. I like the idea of an "Oops, this did not work out" box.

Love,

Monica

The colors are so rich looking - bold and bright. I love it.

How different this flower looks embossed or coloured; it is beautiful how the repeated flower makes a perfect fitting background for the coloured one! Hugs, Gerrina
