Rooted in Nature meets Watercolours

In Rooted in Nature by Coastal CrafterLeave a Comment


So this week is Half Term in the UK and currently pouring with rain so we are having a lazy morning inside! So, I thought I would take the opportunity to get this blog post out to you all with this card I made as swap. These were postal swaps I participated in with the fabulous Stampin’ Creative ladies, and can’t wait to share them all with you – more on these later this week :)

For my card I started with the background and to create this I have used watercolour card and added a little water where I wanted the background to be, then I have added a touch of each of the green inks, which are Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Call Me Clover.
Thinking of you using the Rooted in Nature Set and Dies

I have then cut out and embossed the leaves in the same colour card stock. To achieve the cooper embossing I have ‘smooshed’ the leave into the versamark pad and then added the copper embossing powder and heated. (To see this technique you can check out my Facebook videos – link below) Once the background was completely dry and I have then stamped the sentiment in versamark and embossed in copper.

The next step was to sew on the leaves, I have used my sewing machine to do this, but if you didn’t have a machine you could add some hand stitching if you wanted to or simply glue on the leaves, as I have done on this pink version.

If you would like to see this card being made you can check out all my FB lives HERE & this one was made on Sunday 27th May – Enjoy!

That’s all from me for today, but I shall be back tomorrow with another Inspire.Create Challenge and this fortnight we are being Inspired by the new In-Colours!
