Bonjour – Creative Medium Effects

by Katharina Frei

I love the effect of Creative Medium on dark cardstock and today I am going to share this technique with everyone. Along with how highlighting your titles with the Kaleidacolor Rainbow Inkpad makes it pop off the page. A simple project but, the end result is simply stunning!

Difficulty: Beginners
Time: 30 min + dry time

Directions: 

Step 1

Take your  Creative Medium Gold Metallic and a rose stencil by Heidi Swapp to create a dimensional background. Then let the cardstock dry for half an hour before cutting it to size.

Step 2:

Once all the inks are completely dry,  take your precut title and wet it with your watercolor brush pen as shown in the first photo.

Step 3:

After wetting the precut title instantly press the Kaleidacolor Rainbow Inkpad onto the title piece to add color.

Step 4:

To add some additional dimension to the card stamp your sentiment directly onto white vellum paper.

To finish the project off, I added the Monterey pine leaf embellishment which I inked in green from the Kaleidacolor rainbow pad to match my title for a perfect finish!
