Add highlights to dry embossing (Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Lush Garden Release Blog Hop + Giveaway)

Altenew named this months Craft Your Life Project Kit right this month as it is lush! The Lush Garden Craft Your Life project kit has a beautiful floral bloom stamp set which also features in the embossing folder. I used both of these two pieces from the kit for today’s card and used pigment ink to add highlights to dry embossing. The recently released mixed media inks were perfect for this card making technique as I went for a lovely blue and teal colour combination. But they have many colours depending on what you choose for your colour scheme. 

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Nathalie DeSousa. You can always start at the beginning of the hop over at the Altenew Card Blog here.

Make sure you check out the end of the post for more details on the hop, along with your next stop!

written tutorial

Add highlights to dry embossing

Create with mix media inks

Start off by dry embossing Nautical cardstock with the Lush Garden 3D embossing folder. Next, use the Artic Mixed Media ink and gently drag this over the top of the embossed cardstock. The ink will transfer to the embossed areas highlighting the design. Set this to one side to dry as it is pigment ink. 

For the focal images, stamp the two blooms from the Lush Garden stamp set using the Tranquility Ink set. For the centre of the flowers, use Warm Sunshine ink. Next, use the coordinating dies to cut the blooms out. 

Adhere your embossed background to a white card base and then add the stamped blooms over the design, aligning the blooms with the same blooms in the embossed design. Add the hello sentiment from the CAF: California Giants die set along with a smaller heat embossed sentiment.

Lastly, embellish with a few Moonstone drops from Lucy’s cards to finish the card.
