Rose Wonder Heat Embossing and Watercolouring

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Rose Wonder Heat Embossing and Watercolouring

Well this is a different kind of card for me…. the lovely Diana Gibbs created a card a few months back on a Facebook Live that she did and I loved it. I didn’t do exactly the same technique that she did, but I certainly took inspiration from a pretty style of card.

It’s all about the white heat embossing you see. That’s what makes the colours stand out. Sadly, I’m no great photographer, so it’s hard to see the full outline of the white embossing powder, but in real life, it’s quite a striking effect.

I used my Watercolour pencils to get the colour onto the petals and leaves and then added a little smoky slate around the edges, just to make that white embossing stand out a bit more.

I definitely will have another go at a card like this, although I do think practice will improve mine…!

    Hope all went well with your house move yesterday. I love white embossing, it is subtle and shows off water colouring well, as you have done with this card. Love it Sam.

  6. Yet another beautiful card and a great technique, thank you.
    Hope you are settling down from the move and beginning to feel at home.
