I really hope you are all enjoying your summer - can you believe we are over half way through August already?!?!
I am back again this week with another card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge - if you haven't had a chance to join us and play along - now is a great time! This week is another absolutely fabulous sketch:
This week I decided to try a technique I had never done before - resist embossing. I was recently watching the feed from this year's Stampin' Up! convention and saw one of the presenters use this technique and I really wanted to try it. Basically, I used Watercolour Paper and stamped it with Versamark ink. I then used White Embossing Powder along with my Heat Tool. I then used my Aqua Painter along with Coastal Cabana ink and painted over the paper. The ink does not stick to the Embossing Powder and creates this wonderful effect - unfortunately, I found it super hard to photograph - I hope you can see it! And it really is Coastal Cabana - for some reason the colour almost looks green in some of the pictures... :(
Here is my card:
