Pastel Embossing

I decided to emboss flowers today.

I chose the Country Floral embossing folder by Stampin Up to emboss and color. It is a 3D folder so it has a lot of dimension. I embossed on Ranger Watercolor Paper, then proceeded to add color. I used Gina K Designs ink with a blender brush. I did come back and add a bit more color with pencils taking the pigment directly from the pencil with water. I chose a sentiment from Stippled Flowers from Gina K Designs. I added a bit of ribbon and a few gems.

I found my inspiration for the colors by searching the folder on Google. I found a SU demonstrator who shared exactly which colors she used and the card recipe. Her name is Cindy. Thank you Cindy for the inspiration and helpful blog post.

  1. Well aren’t you becoming the coloring queen, way to use those mixed media tools. This one defiantly adds sweet thoughtfulness.

    1. Thank you! I guess I never think of this as mixed media. I have been adding ink to embossing folders for quite a while for the Dirty Dozen cards. I will mail you one!

  2. Lovely card, Lisa. The soft pastel colors added to your embossing folder really brought it to life. Gorgeous card.

  3. You have infinite patience when you colour and always the results are fabulous. It is a beautiful card Lisa.

    1. Thank you! The watercolor seems to go fast. I am a bit slow with Prismacolor pencils, but do enjoy it.
