Try a New Technique!

Hi there! Over at Inspired by Stamping we are trying new techniques!

I decided to try colouring on kraft cardstock. Here is what I came up with -



I love how this turned out. I have used the Aster stamp set - it is such a wonderful set. Very versatile and fun to use.

Firstly, I embossed the Aster onto the kraft panel. Then I used waterbased markers to colour it all in. Why waterbased? Because I tried with my alcohol markers first and realised that I couldn't wipe the ink off the embossed lines. Whoops! So, if you are going to try this technique, make sure you use waterbased markers and the ink will wipe straight off your embossing!!


Here is a close up of the Aster



I also embossed the sentiment with white powder.



Please let me know if you try this technique! I would love to see what you come up with.


Tips:

Use waterbased markers
I used lighter colours because having a darker cardstock made the colours deeper in the end





Inspired by Stamping Flower Of The Month Asters stamp set



I would like to enter this card into the

2015 World Wide Open Design Team Challenge



Thanks so much for stopping by today

  1. Looks fab, Kylie

    A P.S. to your embossed image/alcohol marker ...... alcohol markers can cause your embossing powder to streak - I've noticed this in the past, particularly with things like black sparkle!! I used to emboss a lot but, once I started using A.M.'s I virtually stopped!
