Beside Me for the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop- July 2023

Here is my card using the Beside Me stamp set.

Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post. Please visit everyone!

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge.

Here is the photo for the challenge. A fun and relaxing scene.

I was inspired by the photo to think of a great time on the beach during summer break. Fortunately, I had a stamp that conveys a moment of that summertime fun.

The image is part of the Beside Me stamp set. (The “Happy Birthday ” sentiment is from the Inked & Tiled stamp set.)

I had been wanting to try embossing in white emboss powder on a colored background for quite a while. I was also interested in coloring with the Watercolor Pencils using the White pencil first.

A little about how I created this card:

First I embossed the image using the White Emboss Powder & a heat tool. Tip: Remove the heat as soon as the embossing powder melts. Too much heat results in the embossing chipping off the paper.

Next I colored the entire image with the White Watercolor Pencil.

Then I used the the colored Watercolor Pencils.

For the inside, I kept it simple.

This technique was a lot of fun to try. I want to make more!

I hope you enjoyed my interpretation of this challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by. Stop by the rest of the blogs today for more inspiration!
