Hello, can you believe it’s the weekend already? And don’t we love the weekend as we get more time to craft, well for me I do! Today is my usual post up on the Brutus Monroe blog and I created a beautiful watercolour butterfly emboss resist background using the Butterfly sentiment 2.0 stamp set from Brutus Monroe. I wanted a soft subtle background to sit a bold sentiment on and it was so fun creating my own background paper. Emboss resist technique is such a lovely technique and you can create some truly fun and unique pieces. So if you have never tried it before, I recommend you have a go!
Watercolour butterfly emboss resist Card Process Overview
Prep a piece of watercolour paper with an anti-static tool and repeatedly stamp across the paper horizontally. A stamp positioner helps to align your stamps, but you can do it with with regular acrylic blocks. If you are finding it difficult to see where you have stamped, cover with embossing powder as you go – but don’t heat set until the end to prevent warping. Once heat set, apply a clear wash of water over the background and starting dropping in your watercolours. Leave to dry before assembling the card.
For the sentiment, I die cut the sentiment from black cardstock and from black fun foam. I applied several layers of black embossing powder to the sentiment to give a glossy shiny look. This was adhered to the card with an additional sentiment. Lastly, the panel was foam mounted on a card base and embellished with white Tonic nuvo drops.
