Faux Embossing with Lil' Inker Designs June Monthly Meetup Challenge!


Monthly Meetup2

Hi!  It's June 11 and we are ready for another Monthly Meetup Challenge over on the Lil' Inker Designs blog!  Go check out the Lil' Inker Designs store!!!


I am still in watercolor mode here so today's card uses the "Faux Embossing" technique with some added watercolor!  I began with a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor paper which I spritzed with lots of water.  Next, I began dropping Distress Ink colors randomly to create my own watercolor paper.  After letting this dry, I diecut my Perky Posies Dies from this watercolor panel.  The result are these fun colored flowers!  I've glued my flowers onto a trimmed piece of white cardstock and added a sentiment using the Hello die.

Very pretty card, Amy. Your watercoloring reminds me of "tie die" t-shirts I loved in the past (OK, I'll quietly admit I still like them).
