Remind someone that they are awesome with this Sea Breeze easy watercolored background with gold embossing vellum sentiment. The color challenge this month is sea tones. I decided to place my design on decorated paper and not over regular cardstock. I am using one of the sea colors included on the Serenade collection from Quick Quotes Scrapbook and the Kaleidacolor Inkpad in Caribbean Sea. It’s a perfect match to get all kinds of lovely tropical sea colors!
Time: 30 minutes + dry time
Cut the layer of decorated paper to 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”. Stamp the image background using VersaMark. Sprinkle on white embossing powder and shake off excess. Melt the powder with a heat tool.
Ink your mat with Kaleidacolor Ink in Caribbean Sea. Mix and extend the inks by spraying some Ink Potion No.9 on your ink.
Rub your stamped layer over the mix of inks. Let variation in color occur, and even allow some areas to have the base paper show through. That’s why we didn’t use white cardstock! Let the paper dry naturally or speed the process with the heat tool.
With Memento Markers in Pear Tart and New Sprout enhance the sea colors on the leafy parts of your stamped image. Resize your layer and paste it over a whisper white card base.
Stamp your message or sentiment on vellum using VersaMark. Coat with Gold Embossing Powder and shake off excess. Melt the powder with a heat tool. Paste the sentiment over the card with glue dots.
