Create a "Hello Friend" Card with Pico Embellisher

I love stamps as much as the next crafty person. Sometimes, I like to hand draw my own images though. Did you know you can draw your images with Imagine’s irRESISTible Pico Embellisher? IrRESISTible is a texture medium; which adds dimension to your project. It comes with a fine-tipped applicator for writing or making doodles. For the background, I used various All-Purpose Inks to create a watercolor painted look and then drew on top with the Pico Embellisher.

Skill: Beginner/Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Determine how many colors of All-Purpose Ink. Prepare a water container for each color, so that you do not contaminate the colors; also, avoids running the risk of your ink turning into a mud color. Use a different for each color, or wash the brush between each color if using the same brush.


Step 2

First, wet the area with plain water. Place a small amount of ink into one of the ink wells. Add water to the ink and brush onto the paper.


Step 3

Repeat the same process for each color. Do not blend the colors; just lay them next to each other. Dry the paper.


Step 4

Brush on Creative Medium in order to seal in the All-Purpose Ink. Draw your image using Zeal Teal irRESISTible Pico Embellisher. If you are not used to this medium, first practice drawing on a piece of scratch paper. Always squeeze out the Pico Embellisher onto scratch paper to eliminate the bubbles, before applying to your project. Finally, stamp on sentiment and assemble the card.
