Hello everyone!! It's Jenny here, and today I'm joining you with a card that features one of my favorite techniques - emboss resist. You can apply a number of 'wet' mediums over heat embossing - watercolor paint, ink, brushmarkers - the embossed outlines will resist it and shine through.
For my focal image, I'm using the Crafty Meraki Believe in Miracles stamp, illustrated by the super talented Emily Midgett! It's a giant floral image, perfect for full card coverage. I heat embossed mine onto a panel of Bristol cardstock. It's smooth which is good for heat embossing onto, and still absorbs wet mediums. I heat embossed in Altenew Pure White embossing powder, offsetting the image from the edge.
To color my image, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, with a little bit of water from a waterbrush. I added the colors into the areas that would be shadows or darker, then pulled them out, blending towards the opposite edge. All of the images use only one shade on each area! I also outlined the image with a pale blue marker then pulled it out for the background.
When the panel was dry, I splattered lots of water and some of the purple and blue-gray marker. This bleaches little spots on the image and adds texture. I trimmed the panel and added it to a notecard. The sentiments are also in the same stamp set, heat embossed in white on black cardstock, trimmed out and popped up on foam tape. I finished with some Pinkfresh Studio Jewels to finish.
Have a wonderful day!
