TSG90 A bear full of love
There are several techniques that are essential for stampers to have in their arsenal, and this week Corinna is our Trendsetter of the Week at There She Goes. wants us to make sure that wet embossing is one of them! Pull out your heat gun along with some embossing powders and get busy! You can emboss a solid image on your creation, emboss an outlined image and watercolor it, or showcase another wet embossing technique…your choices are endless!
Well.... I kinda took the easy way out didn't I??? Don't shoot the messenger okay? When I watercolor, I always end up using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and Clear Detail Embossing Powder so that it gives you a "dam" ask Kim Teasdale would say. It allows you to be able to watercolor without going outside the lines... And believe me... I tend to like to color outside the lines. For my card, I've used two sets from There She Goes, Bear Hugs and Sending my Love (for the sentiment). I thought that this could make a cute Valentine's card for a child or a friend. The DP is from Pebbles (it was one of my finds on Saturday at my LSS). It's been awhile since I've done a CAS card and it feels good to be making one again.
To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes wet embossing techniques, and then go to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post.
