CARD

To showcase this product I decided to execute one of my favorite technique – white embossed no masking background.

Messy Watercolored Carnations Background. Card by Svitlana Shayevich

No masking is an operative word in this technique. When we create a background using embossing powder there is no need to do masking for overlapping elements – you can simply brush off the powder from the overlapped areas. I embossed the carnations onto the Altenew watercolor panel.

After creating the background I performed a messy watercoloring using the Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I was simply wetting each element and adding watercolor pigment onto it, letting it flow freely. Then I also was extending the color outside of an element.

Next I added some splatters onto the background.

Then I wrapped a burlap twine around the watercolored panel tying a bow in the left part and foam mounted it onto a Parchment card base.

Lastly I popped up the sentiment made using the Bold Thanks Die Set.

    I recently received my first water coloring pallet (of course from Altenew) and certainly am a blank canvas (i.e., I don’t know what I am doing). But watching all the guests and team’s works and videos have given me confidence to think I can do it! Thanks for the inspiration and beautiful make and explanation!

    Card is beautiful. The white embossing and a watercolor wash would make this a relatively quick card to make. I call this simple yet elegant. My kind of card since I have limited time to play.
