Botanical Prints Medley - Let's Learn Some Techniques!


I have been holding onto this Medley for a few weeks now trying to figure out what I wanted to make with it.   Today, it came to me.  Why not just practice and demonstrate some fun techniques.  We can always use a refresher for techniques!  At least I know I can.

When I gathered all of my supplies I really didn't have any particular techniques in mind....except maybe the first technique I demonstrated in the videos below and that is using embossing paste.  I love the look and dimension that it adds to a card or other paper craft project.  

Here is the card I made with the  embossing paste background.

I love how the background just "jumps off" from the card. 

The second technique I used was sponging with several different colors.  I used the lattice die cut as a mask and then decided I like the sponging on the mask as a background.

What do you think?  Simple technique but it adds so much color to the card.

The third technique I demonstrated was using the Spritzing bottle with a mixture of 70% Isopropyl Alcohol and Terracotta Tile Ink refill.

I spritzed an entire sheet of Whisper White Card Stock and it turned out a beautiful pale, Terracotta Tile color.    I stamped the sentiment on a strip of it for the above card.

After I finished these three cards I took a little break.  I came back online on Facebook Live later to showcase some other techniques.  

Fourth technique featured today is heat embossing...I love this technique so much.  I did it twice.  And I even threw in some watercoloring.

I loved how the heat embossing turned out on the water color paper, this card and the card above.  

Here is the final card. Water coloring with the aqua painters and sponging for this card!  

I am so happy with the way this card looks.  The sponged background on the watercolor paper is so striking.  To be honest, I really wasn't expecting that.  It was a pleasant surprise.  

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!
