Step 1- Emboss the Watercolor Paper
- Using the Versamark Ink stamp the images onto the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.
- Stamp two images, then cover them with the White Emboss Powder. Shake off the excess.
- Use the Heat Tool to set.
- Stamp two more images and repeat.
- That way you can see where you stamped to avoid stamping on top of another image.
Step 2- Emboss Resist Technique
- Prepare several layers of paper towels to work on.
- Squeeze each of the colored ink pads to get ink on the inside of the lid. Open & set up in a line above the paper towels.
- Use the Stampin’ Spritzer to spray water on the embossed Watercolor Paper. The water beads up on the paper.
- Use the Water Painter to pick up ink from the lid.
- Brush the ink onto the moist Watercolor Paper one color at a time.
- TIP: In between colors, squeeze water from the Water Brush onto a paper towel until it runs clear.
- Dry overnight. Or use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process.
Step 3- Assembling the Card
- Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Seaside Bay Dies to cut one large & one small algae from the center of the Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer Paper. C
- Cut 2 small & one large seashell from the Crumb Cake cs.
- Adhere the Basic White cs to the inside of the Balmy Blue cs card base.
- Adhere the Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer Paper to the card front.
- Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the embossed & watercolored card piece to the card front.
- Adhere the large algae diecut to the bottom left corner of the card front. Adhere the small algae.
- Adhere the seashells
Step 4- Bling!
- First add some Wink of Stella to the seashells.
- Then add some of the Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls.
