Hello, Cindy here today to share my adventurous project! 😉
This month challenge theme is Texture. Now you know there are many ways to add texture to your project, from the plain old crumbling your paper to heat & dry emboss to adding embossing paste, it is a lot of fun to make a textured surface. I kid you not!!! And I made the texture the star of my card today.
Are you ready?
Now I must tell you that I had plenty fun during the process!
Because (I properly shouldn’t tell you this, but being the honest person that I am, I must) I didn’t know where I was going with it. LOL!
I wanted the texture to lead me to my stamping.
Hence the sentiment I put.
Okay here goes…
- Tape down watercolour paper use masking tape and mask off 3/5 inches to create a border at the same time.
- Spread a thin layer of embossing paste all over trying to keep it level.
- Press a solid stamp on top of embossing paste, and then lift the stamp. (Quickly wash off the paste from the stamp). Alternatively use the back of a wood mount stamp. Then remove the masking tape and let that piece dry completely. (I was impatient and used a heat gun.)
- Some area looked like the veins of leaves, so I stamped Garden Flowers by Lia and Stamped My Own Succulents with distress ink on the textured area.
- Trim watercolour paper panel and adhere to colour card stock then onto card base.
