The November Watercolour Text Challenge was a huge success. So many amazing and creative cards linked to our Gallery. I can't wait to see the cards for Watercolour Resist...a favorite technique by so many talented stampers.
Here is my Brushos Watercolour Emboss Resist Card. I love the vintage style of my Christmas Card.
I used my STAMPlorations "Poinsettia Row" clear stamp and MISTI to stamp the image onto Arches 140# Cold Press paper with Versamark and heat embossed with SU White Embossing Powder. I then spritzed the image and around the image with water and sprinkled on Leaf Green, Scarlet and Brilliant Red Brushos. I spritzed a little again so the colors would blend more then air dried. Before totally dry I used a paper towel to rub the Brushos off my heat embossed image. My image had an ivory vintage look instead of white so I went with SU off white Victoria Lace (ret) to trim the cut down poinsettia panel. I taped the ribbon to the back of the panel letting just the pretty edge of the lace show.
Next I die cut the card front with the largest (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") of the three CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle nesting Die. I used my MISTI again to stamp my HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments "Seasons Greetings" in SU Emerald Envy.
I then attached my panel with foam tape to the card front to pop it up and added 4 Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops..White Blizzard. I have a little container with pre-made Nuvo drops in 4 different colors and several sizes and attach to cards when needed using my SU Fine Tip Glue Pen. Sharing a little trick...when I attach sequins and drops with my glue pen I set a large acrylic block on top and they attach quickly and securely.
I then attached the die cut layer to the SU Very Vanilla card base and voila'...all Done! I loved the results and hope you like it too.
