Do you ever have one of those days where you just stare at your project and don't know where to start? That was me today! I selected three challenges to create this Good Thoughts Emerging Color Card. A sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, colours from ColourQ and a Flower challenge from Stampotique Designers. I think my biggest problem was I didn't have any patterned paper that pulled the colors together. So, after a lot of staring at my project I finally decided to play around with the Emerging Color Technique, click link to view tutorial from Splitcoaststampers.
I'm sure there are many different variations on the Emerging Color Technique. Here are directions for my card: Cut white piece of cardstock to desired size, sponge on the colors you want to use. I used Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder. Make sure ink is dry and dust over the cardstock with your embossing buddy. Using VersaMark ink and your selected stamp (Petite Petals), randomly stamp onto the cardstock. Apply your clear embossing powder, shake off excess and heat emboss. With you darkest color ink sponge all over your cardstock piece. Rub embossed areas with paper towel to remove surface ink. Repeat process if needed to darken your inked area.
The Wisteria Wonder doesn't really pop with the Rich Razzleberry using this technique but I still think it looks nice. This process is a little messy but it's a lot of fun. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
