Interrupting my Foxy Friends project week to ask... Are you ready for a new challenge? This week at Just Add Ink Nikki has asked us to just add wings.
Of course I had to choose a butterfly as my wings. Here's my card.
Watercolour Lifting Technique1. Watercolour wash - use aquapainter to wash at least 2 ink colours over a piece of card. I used watermelon wonder & peekaboo peach on shimmery white card. Love that shimmer & it's beautiful to colour with.
2. Clear emboss images - using versamark, clear embossing powder & heat tool. I used images from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set.
3. Remove some of the wash colour using a clean aquapainter. Leave card to dry (or use a heat tool if you're impatient).
Repeat step 2 & 3 to emboss more images at remove more colour if you'd like.
When finished, the initial deep colour wash is protected behind the embossed images & the rest is lightened. This pic better shows the shine of the embossing & shimmer card. The colours are much more pink irl (darned night photos).
Back to the rest of the card...
I popped the white panel onto the embossed layer with dimensionals, then a peekaboo peach layer & watermelon wonder base. Done! This pic shows the sheen quite well.
and one more to show the inside with another embossed piece.
So, what do you think - do you like my wings? Check out all the JAI team's winged projects on the Just Add Ink blog & try the challenge yourself.
