WATERCOLOURED HIBISCUS

I chose to try out the new embossing powders. In particular, I love a muted gold, and so I was immediately drawn to the new Rose Gold. I started this card by stamping elements from the Hibiscus Burst stamp set in Antique Linen Distress ink on Arches Cold Pressed watercolour card and loosely watercolouring to get an abstract look.

I used a variety of watercolours but in particular, Quinacridone Coral, Quinacridone Rose, Hansa Yello Light, Undersea Green and Ultramarine Blue.

I then stamped some of the outline images from the Hibiscus Burst set in clear embossing ink, sprinkled with Rose Gold embossing powder and heat set. To keep with the random, abstract look, I didn’t worry too much about how accurately the outlines of the leaves and flowers aligned with the painted versions.

I also wanted the Rose Gold embossing powder theme to follow through into the sentiment. I pressed the embossing ink onto a scrap piece of card and sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set. I repeated this three times before die cutting the ‘hugs’ die from the Script Words set. After die cutting I ran the heat tool over the die cut so give a beautiful smooth finish to the heat embossing. I also partially stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Day set and again heat embossed with the Rose Gold embossing powder before trimming to a skinny banner.

I added the watercoloured panel to a Pale Gray card base and then adhered the sentiment in the lower left third. As a final touch, I added a few pink and peach sequins.
