Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Heat Embossing Resist Watercolour Sploosh with Eclectic Expressions
Well earlier this week I shared a bag made with heat embossing detail using the Eclectic Expressions stamp set and I so loved the finished look that I decided to use it on today’s card too.
But rather than stamp and emboss onto dark cardstock, I decided to use my much beloved Watercolour Sploosh technique.
Oh it’s so simple!
- Heat emboss your stamped image (I went with silver embossing powder) onto watercolour paper and let it dry well.
- Spritz your paper with water and then drip blobs of reinker onto it and let them run all over the place. If you need to, guide them with an Aqua Painter.
- Once dry (use your heat gun if you’re impatient like me!) drop spots of water on the ink. Leave for a few seconds then dab off. this leaves the paler splodges
- Layer over silver foiled cardstock and onto a coloured background card blank.
- Job done!
My colours for reinker are (left to right!) Blushing Bride, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Calypso Coral (although this one got covered up a bit!)
I really like the look, every card is different, but oh so inexpensive to make and so much fun!
