1 Die 8 Looks: Part 4 - Embossing with the Die

Hi there,

this is the next part of my series over at the Karten-Kunst Blog. Part 4 is all about embossing with the flower die:

  • emboss the Memory Box Sketch Daisy onto a piece of watercolor paper
  • stamp the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Frühlingserwachen set with Versafine (Smokey Gray)
  • create a background using watered-down Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalde) and a watercolor brush
  • add splatters with the same inks
  • add the left over silhouette from Project 3
  • mat the panel onto a piece of grey cardstock and create a 1/16'' border with the help of the Mini Perfect Layers Tool

Here are the links to the other parts:
Part 1 - Black Silhouette against Alcohol Ink Background
Part 2 - Flower against Watercolor Background
Part 3 - Vellum Cutout

Be sure to visit again next week for Part 5 of my little series 1 Die 8 Looks.

Dragon Flight

Hi there,

I have a fun Mixed Media ATC on the A Day for Daisies Blog for you:

  • color the A Day for Daisies Dragon Flight image with Distress Markers and a damp watercolor brush
  • add Pico Embellisher (Shimmer) to its little purple dots
  • create some Gelli Print backgrounds on deli paper using a brayer, Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paints (Lapis, Night, Turquoise, Magenta) and the ARTplorations Leaf Bliss Large stencil and the ARTplorations Big Bloom Factory Large stencil
  • cover an ATC cut from sturdy watercolor paper with part of a print using Dina Wakley Gel Medium
  • apply some Prima Marketing Modleing Paste throught the TCW Love Post stencil
  • mix some Distress Paint (Hickory Smoke) with Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid, paint it over the dried texture paste, let it sit for a minute and wipe some of it away with a baby wipe - repeat this process until you are happy with the result
  • ink up the edges of the ATC with Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke)
  • add some black splatters with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors
  • choose some Ideaology Remnant Rubs (Botanical) as embellishments
  • apply Versamark around the edges of the card and heat-emboss them with Archival Watering Can embossing powder
