Gold heat embossing with watercoloring

Hi there stampers!  Today's card features heat embossed flowers in gold with watercoloring.  I took the flower spray from the stamp set Timeless Love and created a wreath by stamping the image in a circle pattern onto some watercolor paper with versamark ink.  I heat embossed the flowers in gold and then proceeded to watercolor the images with blushing bride, rose red, perfect plum, wisteria wonder, crushed curry, and mint macaron inks.


How I watercolor using my SU stamp pads is pretty simple.  I push the stamp pads onto a craft sheet to transfer some of the ink from the stamp pad to the craft sheet.  I then add water to the inks and the amount of water depends on how intense I want the color to be.  I then pick up color with a watercolor brush and apply to my image on watercolor paper.  Clean up is simple as you just wipe the craft sheet with wet and dry paper towels to remove all the remaining inks.


I finished the card by cutting the watercolored image out with the circles collection framelits.  I also cut a piece of whisper white with the next size circle and heat embossed the edges of that circle with the same gold embossing powder to get the matching gold layer.  The circle was added to a card front made from an A2 cardbase of the thick whisper white cardstock layered with a blushing bride piece that had been embossed with the Lovely Lace embossing folder.


The sentiment across the circle is from the stamp set Cottage Greetings and this was heat embossed in gold on some vellum which was layered on a piece of blushing bride.

Some big things will be coming to my blog this month.  First, I am working with a designer to give my blog some much needed improvements and makeover.  I can't wait to see what the designer comes up with and hopefully my blog will be more appealing to all you wonderful creative people out there.

Secondly, I am working on a new video series called Manic Mondays.  This video series will consist of a new video and card every Monday that features a project that you can do in less than 15 minutes.  I plan to have giveaways and fun things throughout this video series so I hope you will join me by heading over to my YouTube channel and following me there - YouTube.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!
