Today’s card was made for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I liked the sketch and thought I could try out a new technique that I recently came across. The technique was to emboss the paper with a die and then watercolor to bring out the embossing.
I started by using my PTI argyle impression plate and a piece of watercolor cardstock to get some texture. Then, using some distress inks, I watercolored on the paper. Hoping that the colors would bring out the texture.
And it kind of does, in real life. Unfortunately, it does not show thru on the pictures. Oh well. I added the sentiment and some bling and then layered the watercolor paper on a piece of tangelo twist and kraft.
It was fun to try this and I will give it another try with some other dies. The technique I watched used a die to emboss (not cut) the paper, so I thought an impression plate would work too. And it does, as long as you aren’t taking pictures of it! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!
