Dry Embossing and various colouring techniques


During July the ladies at Group of Seven Cardmakers were sharing their inspiration using dry embossed images.....

Colouring Dry Embossing

With my first card... I embossed the image on white card and watercoloured the background leaves. Then I embossed the center section again and swiped it with Versamark and gold embossed the raised areas, fussy cut the circle and placed in on top of the original.

My second card is a long 3D embossed floral image on white card and then used Distress Inks blended over the raised areas, and finished with a stamped sentiment.

My third set of Christmas cards used the same embossed background on white and green card and then highlighted the embossing blending over Distress Inks. ...  finished of the cards with tags from my stash.   I am joining in with the August Rudolph Days challenge.

July Card Chain Challenge Reveal


Here's my July Card Chain Challenge card that I sent off to Linda W in the USA.  I used circles, stitches and two colours from the palette. 

I remembered I had this scribbly circle die and thought to use them as flowers... die cut from 'pineapple' yellow card and with a little 'peach' ink blended on the centers.  Then I used another stitched die that you would use to create a horizon line and laid them at different angles to create the leaves and stems. Mounted them onto a PP background and added a stamped die cut sentiment (from Jillibean).

Theme Options: Fish / Circles / Friendship

Product / Technique Options: Buttons / Stitches
