I think like most crafter’s the love of embossing, especially watching it happen never really goes away. I know for me it was one of the first techniques I learned in card making and even though it was over 10 years ago I still love it as a technique today.
So needless to say I loved this challenge.
I have to confess that the embossing powder I used- WOW Copper I love so much I actually purchased several pots of it and I am now on my last one !
I really wanted to use Simon’s More Spring Flowers Stamp set along with the power, I especially love the crocus from this set.
I stamped the Crocus using Simon’s Clear Ink and then heat embossed before masking the flower off and stamping some of the leafs.
For the sentiment I used one of the sentiments from Simon’s Loving Heart Stamp Set.
I have confess I made a mistake which I realised of course after I had done all the stamping and that was that I had stamped onto Bristol Smooth paper rather than Watercolour paper !!
But I did know I wanted to do quite loose watercoloring and not lots of layers etc so I just went with it.
For the watercoloring I used Mijello Missiongold watercolours.
I die cut the panel using Simon’s Stitched rectangle dies and then added some twine and sequins before adhering the panel to a top folding kraft card base.
So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting
