Card, Colour and Embossing

Experimenting with white cardstock, Spectrum Aqua Pens, letterpress plates, stamps, stamping with anything other than your traditional stamp and clear embossing powder.

I really enjoyed doing these and created some pretty bits for my journal. I managed to achieve a great embossed image using a Todo letterpress plate and my Sizzix Big Shot. I also embossed with clear embossing ink on the plate, added clear embossing powder after, set, then added colour.

The lace boarder turned better than expected. This was achieved by stamping with clear embossing ink and lace which had a raised pattern, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The colours used were blossom, red violet and teal for the ombre colour effect.
