Today I have a video (see below) showing step by step how to heat emboss and watercolor the beautiful Vintage Teacup set from Altenew. To get started I stamped the cup and saucer in clear embossing ink and Antique Gold heat embossed before die cutting with the matching dies. I also stamped the sweet flowers from the Vintage Teacup set on the cup and saucer in Blush ink. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
I then took to my watercolors to give a gentle pastel pink gradient to the teacup with pretty flowers reminiscent of the ones my Mother and Grandmother used to have. After watercoloring I went in with colored pencils to define the details and add a few shadows.
I gold embossed the sentiment on a panel of watercolored card with softly torn edges. Then I added a light blue watercolored background with paint and gold splatters. I stamped the steam in Mocha ink on both the teacup and background. Next I added all the elements to the card with foam adhesive and on to a kraft card base. Finally I added a few sequins to accent.
Watch the video for this card below or in HD at YouTube.
