Turquoise birthday

I am back with the same stamp featured in my previous post, ‘Felicity’ from Penny Black. I wanted to show you another look incorporating the emboss resist technique. I embossed the stamp in white powder on hot pressed watercolour paper then chose turquoise brusho powder to add the colour over the top. I sprinkled brusho then spritzed water and tilted my panel to get the colour to move. I alternated between sprinkling and spritzing until there was enough colour on the panel then used a paint brush to fill the large surrounding areas with turquoise paint. I love the way some spaces captured deep colour and others remained almost white. That is the beauty of combining the emboss resist technique with brusho.

To finish off this card I added a sentiment die cut from foam then coloured it with clear wink of stella to make it sparkle.

I hope you will be inspired to pull out some embossing powder for the emboss resist challenge I am co-hosting with The Foiled Fox.

I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    I have just bought some Brushos and am enjoying trying them out and definitely still in the learning stage. I have the turquoise colour so must try a background like this. You seem to have managed to get a great balance of dark and light and the leaves are the perfect background design Heather. x
