Emboss resist watercolour card + tutorial video!

Hello again!

Today I have for you this beautiful gradient card! I also have the video of how to make one just like it underneath!

I just love the colours and the swirls on this background stamp! I stamped it using Versa Mark and heat embossed with opaque white embossing powder.

I then used my distress inks and water to  colour them  over the embossed area.

I loved the background so much that I decided to just add a little something to not cover it up too much. I cut a stripe of  vellum and stamped a sentiment “love” across it, using silver embossing powder.

I took a picture of the card  around 3pm when the sun was setting you can see it on the top of the card, I think it adds beauty, I love that kind of sun!
