Welcome to my project inspiration for this month's challenge. The theme was a technique based one, "Resist".
I decided to go with using the way embossing powder resists watercolours.
This is what I came up with:
Cut an A7 card (5" x 7" ) from blue cardstock (or use a premade one). Stamp using random combinations from My Favourite Things (MFT) Party Patterns set and a Paris Dusk blue Memento Ink pad. Using some Strathmore cold press watercolour paper (I tried on normal card and it doesn't look as nice) stamp and emboss some more of the set using a clear embossing pad and white embossing powder such as Wow's Opaque White Superfine. You'll also need an embossing tool.
Let it cool a little, then dampen the paper with a brush or mister. Then drop in some watercolours. I used some Cotman pans and tubes, but you could also use Brusho powders or Distress Inks. Let dry. Cut into rectangles and mount onto white card rectangle cut slightly bigger. Stamp a sentiment in the blue Memento ink (I used on by Papertrey Ink). Mount some of the same blue you used for the back ground and adhere to the card using foam pads.
So now it's YOUR turn. Yes, you! Right there! Your turn to join in and have some fun, maybe try something new.
The challenge runs for TWO weeks and you can enter on Laura's blog HERE. The winner will be announced two days later.
