Watercolor & Embossing

Watercolor & Embossing - by karen @ carefree creations

Here’s my last July 4th card.

I was inspired by a recent video by Jennifer McGuire about watercoloring and embossing folders. Her technique uses distress inks and watercolor paper. I used plain ole dye ink and regular cardstock.

I smeared ink onto the embossing folder, spritz with water, added my cardstock and ran it through the machine. The right-side did NOT blend, so I covered up part of it with a cardstock border.

The sentiment is stamped on another panel (part of it is handwritten with a marker).

I won’t post my very last card because it is a complete CASE of this awesome card by Janelle.

Thanks for taking a peek!
