I love Sunday evenings because it's a time to chat with my fellow Monday Montage friends on Facebook and post our Monday Montage Blog Hop. I totally click through the hop and admire the creative skills of my Stampin' Up! friends. So, grab your popcorn and enjoy the show!
For this hop I am sharing a card that makes me completely happy; when I see it I smile. The background paper, for me, is truly the star of the show. I call the technique Watercolor Embossing and it's quite simple yet offers such a cool look. A look that can never be duplicated.
Here is how you do it:
1. Preink an embossing folder with dye based ink. For this card I used both Crushed Curry and Blushing Bride. I swiped the ink in opposing corners to keep my pads clean.
2. Spritz the inked folder with water in a Stampin' Mister.
3. Insert a piece of cardstock in the folder and run through the Big Shot. I used Coastal Cabana.
The embellishments on the card are a menagerie of yumminess. There is nothing better than sequins, washi tape, glimmer paper, chevron ribbon, bakers twine, and a ribbon rosette. The heart is stamped with my most favorite image from the set Hello Life. It's just become a "go to" stamp for me in the past few weeks of crafting.
