Golden DelightPosted: October 8, 2019
I decided to let the colorburst paint powders do the colouring for me on this cute little wreath from Penny Black. I embossed the wreath in gold on hot pressed watercolour paper and embossed the sentiment at the same time.
I sprinkled four colours of Ken Oliver’s colorburst powders over the embossing then spritzed with water and watched the colours emerge and spread. I helped them out a little with a paintbrush so paint filled every nook and cranny. Once the panel was dry I die cut the wreath and trimmed the sentiment to the right size then cut a wreath from adhesive backed foam also to pop up the watercoloured one. Before I attached the wreath to the card base I looped some gold embroidery thread back and forth around the wreath letting the adhesive hold it in place.
The woodgrained card base not only has texture it also has a little bronze shimmer to it. I bought it from my local scrapbooking store but you could get the same effect with a woodgrain embossing folder.
Feeling grateful, thankful and blessed to be part of this encouraging and inspiring community.
