Spring Flowers

Sunday, April 12, 2015


 This is a new kind of technique for me which was inspired by Kim Makortoff.  I white embossed these flowers from Paper Smooches Blossoming Buds set on black cardstock and colored them in using watercolor pencils.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.  A little "messy" (which is why I rarely use white embossing powder...even rubbing resin over the cardstock before embossing...I still get speckly :)

Thanks to these challenge blogs!!

  4. Great technique. The white embossing and the watercolours just pop off the black cardstock! Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM xx

  6. So I'm not the only one who gets frustrated with white embossing!! I have exactly the same problem and it really upsets me sometimes because it can easily ruin a great card. To be honest though, I didn't notice any specks at all until I read it in your post. I was too busy taking in those glorious flowers!! This is a gorgeous CASE of Kim's card and I'm so glad you shared it with us at TIME OUT! Hope you will join us again soon!
