Hello and welcome
My card is one I made to celebrate a friend’s new house.
I had great fun playing with this great technique I found on Jennifer McGuire’s blog. While not really new, it was new for me.
The technique involves heat embossing and watercolour lifting. I changed it up a bit and used Distress inks to ink up the background of a piece of card.
The next step is to stamp and clear heat emboss a background stamp ( Hero Arts – Leafy Vines Cling) over the inked background.
Now the fun begins! You need to lightly wash over the card with water and remove some of the colour from the background. The colour under the leaves remains bright and glossy as the background fades!
After cutting a section from the card using MFT Die-namics – Homespun Stitch Lines die, it was adhered it to the card front.
After stamping, Distress water colouring and fussy cutting a bird from MFT – Tweet On You, was added to the top of the sentiment strip ( MFT Homespun Birdhouse Die-namics) with Wink of Stella added.
The last thing was to add die cut birdhouses (Inticutz Secret Garden Collection – 3 letterboxes) covered in Wink of Stella.
Thanks so much for visiting
Have a great week
