This week's Mashup Challenge is:
- Create a project with a "Embossing Folder Stamping Technique". Link Here.
- Create a project with "Mix & Matched Shapes".
- or Mash it Up! and create a "project using the technique with different shapes".
I have added ink to embossing folders before, but not to watercolor with, so this was a nice challenge for me. And, it turned out to be fairly simple (at least my version was simple).
I decided to use the large polka dot textured embossing folder and used a sponge dauber to add Crushed Curry, Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist onto the dots. After spraying the dots with water I transferred the dots to water color paper. I loved the effect! I used a heat tool to help make the dots dry faster.
To go with the various shapes theme, I pulled out a few other framelit sets and cut a few different shapes using the same color scheme. The greeting is from is a Sale-a-bration stamp set, Simply Wonderful Stamp Set, which has a few different greeting types to fit many occasions! I stamped it in Staz-on black and colored in the Thanks greeting with a Crushed Curry marker.
I also added some cotton twine from Stampin' Up! 2015 Occasions Catalog. This cotton twine set is called Painted blooms and has Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky and Whisper White baby soft twine! I added a button. Funny, the button is actually an Island Indigo button from the Regals Designer Buttons pack. The color of this button happened to match well with the watercolored Marina Mist.
I am glad I tried this technique! I think it will definitely be something I use in the future. I like the way the big dots held the color and created such a pretty watercolored effect!
