Hi friends! Happy Wednesday, and welcome to the latest edition of Crafty with Caly with the awesome and talented Caly Person! Read on and be sure to watch the video to learn more about this beautiful card below! Enjoy!
Hi Friends! Do you like embossing folders? I’ll be honest – I get intimidated by them. I don’t know what to do with them to make them “me.” The new 3D embossing folders from the Simon Says Stamp Holly Jolly release are GORGEOUS and I made a point to use them for a project to share with you today.
I’m using Daniel Smith watercolors to watercolor my 3D image from the Peony Bundle embossing folder. After embossing a watercolor panel, I watercolored over the embossed image and painted on colors to give them depth. Be sure to check out the video to see the process!
The embossed image naturally draws pigment into the crevices where darker shades should be so I felt like that was super helpful! However, I do need to say that I noticed the water moved differently over watercolor cardstock that has been pressed in an embossing folder.
When I was done watercoloring, I trimmed and splattered my panel with gold and white paint. Gives it more texture and interest. Since it dries quickly, I set it aside while I trimmed a sentiment from the Thinking of You Sentiment Strips.
To finish my card, I added some iridescent sequins and mounted my card over a card base using layer of craft foam for dimension. I hope you enjoyed this project! Thanks so much for stopping by today! ~Caly
