Watercolours & Embossing

Last week I found myself sewing buttons on nearly every card I made - this week my embossing tool got the workout. I challenged myself to play a little more with watercolours - in my case, using glimmer mists - and I used a familiar layout with a favourite stamp set to do that.


Supplies: stamps from Flourishes; Versamark; Black Detail EP; Tattered Angels glimmer mists - Turquoise Blue and Key Lime Pie; green rhinestones from Dollarama


Using the glimmer mists as watercolours is fabulous - not only are they sparkly, and they blend beautifully, but they are already the right consistency for painting. No errors of too much/too little water! After the panel dried, I trimmed it down to card size & adhered it directly to the base, and added a few gems. Ta-da! 

Entering this card in two challenges -
Creative Card Crew - Embossing (wet or dry)
little red wagon - Confetti

Jessi

Great idea. Did you paint the glimmer mists on with a brush? The result is lovely as is the design.

Beautiful Jessi and I love the idea of using Glimmer mist as a water colour. The scattered bling is the perfect touch too. Thanks for playing along with us at Little Red Wagon this week.
