Create amazing depth of color and texture using embossing folders combined with heat set powders. Then kick it up another notch with Color Burst!
Follow the steps below to achieve this look. Add a raised pattern to a 4x5.25" panel of watercolor paper inserted into an embossing folder and run through an embossing machine. (I use a Big Shot from Sizzix.)
Swipe the Metallic Gold ink pad over the raised surface of the paper.
Sprinkle with gold embossing powder and melt with a heat tool.
Allow the panel to cool and dust with Lemon Yellow, Alizarin Crimson, and Pthalo Green Color Burst pigment powders.
Mist panel with water.
Allow to dry or set with heat tool.
Add panel to a 5.5x8.5" Moroccan Spice Purple folded card base. Embellish with ribbons and a stamped sentiment.
Experiment with different embossing techniques using alternate ink and embossing powder colors. Change up the Color Burst combinations for dramatic results!
Bonus Technique - Stamped Folder Double Emboss
Open the Embossing folder and stamp the Borders and Backgrounds UM medallion onto the back of the front cover.
Lay watercolor paper into folder and run through embossing machine. The stamped image will only be printed onto the de-bossed areas of the panel.
Proceed with the Double Emboss technique from above.
