Simply irresistible challenge reminderPosted: June 23, 2017 Filed under: Flower sparks | Tags: Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints, Penny Black stamps 8 Comments
Today I have a couple more emboss resist projects to remind you we would love to see your projects on the Simply Irresistible Challenge. The Foiled Fox and I have teamed up (as we like to do these days) to issue you with a card challenge. You just need to make a card featuring the emboss resist technique, load it up on your own blog or social media platform then link it on our challenge page.
I embossed the Queen Anne’s Lace stamps on hot pressed watercolour paper for today’s cards then painted over the panels with gansai tambi watercolour paints. As you can see in the close ups, the paint resists the embossing and pools darker in some of the enclosed spaces or against the embossed stems. It is such a cool technique.
I played with two colour schemes, my tried and true blue/pink combo and a deeper blue/green one. The gansai tambi paints can be a bit opaque if not diluted enough so I used sufficient water for them to run over the embossing and resist it, not cover it.
Stamps: happy wishes, flower sparks (PB)
Inks: versamark (Tsukineko)
Paints: gansai tambi (Kuretake)
Paper: hot pressed watercolour paper, white and black cardstock (Neenah) blue and green cardstock
Also: opaque white embossing powder (WOW)
Both these are beautiful! I adore both colour schemes. xxx
So beautiful, Heather. Lovely colors running into each other. I would have a hard time covering any part of these with a tag, and love the pinky one against that background. Thank you for sharing.
What great colours on these two cards Heather and the Queen Anne’s Lace flowers go beautifully in the background and love the two sentiments too. x
Your cards are gorgeous! I really want to try this now! Thanks for the inspiration.
Simply fabulous Heather!
Gorgeous, simply gorgeous. All your creations are, but this one really speaks to me!
Love this card. Haven’t got the paints you used but would try with inks or other watecolour paints. BTW Have done aresist card (not nearly as good as yours but tried!) though I don’t have a blog and have no idea how to get it onto the challenge.
Heather, I love your watercolor cards. I have taken up the challenge to make a card with the embossed resist technique. Sylvia D.
