Today I shared an emboss resist technique with one of my clubs. This is a technique that was showcased at our recent convention and so I cased the card that was demonstrated and showed it to this particular club. They loved it just like me and here are the cards that were made by those able to attend today. The rest of the group will be joining me on another day or receiving a pack with the ingredients to make their own.
You need to emboss your image in clear onto the watercolour paper that we now have in the catalogue, and then colour wash over the image using the aqua painter and colour from the top of an ink pad lid. You need darker colours if you want rich colour or paler for a much more muted look. Depending upon the amount of water you have coming through your aquapainter dictates the colour strength also and how watercoloured your image ends up. You can see from everyone's fabulous efforts that everyone did it differently. For those that haven't come across the stamp set yet it's called Just Believe and believe me it gorgeous!

I haven't bothered to load my card as I didn't think it came close to these wonderful cards. I'm glad to say that everyone shied away from making this card on arrival, but they were all thrilled with their efforts. I was a proud teacher today! Thanks guys for a fun session.
