With today's card, we do a little Faux Dry Embossing and I'll share a twist on Coloring and Blending. It's also my first card with the beautiful Petal Palette Bundle. Wow, is this a gorgeous a gorgeous and versatile bundle!
I love coloring and blending with Stampin' Blends, but I didn't have all the colors that I wanted. It was time to experiment. I colored and blended the small flowers with my Night of Navy Stampin' Blends (Alcohol Markers). I wanted the leaves to be Lemon Lime Twist, so I colored them with a bit of Lemon Lime Twist ink and a Blender Pen. For shading, I simply went back and added more color. For the pink flowers, I combined both coloring techniques. First, I laid down a base color with my Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blend, then I layered on Powder Pink ink with my blender pen. And that's my Twist on Blending and Coloring.
There are some really intricate dies included in the Petals & More Thinlits Dies that lend themselves to Faux Embossing. To give the look of dry embossing with dies, simply die cut your images with the same color as the background, then glue the die cuts directly on top of the background. The dies fool the eye into thinking that it may be dry embossing. Hint: For best results using intricate dies, use the Precision Base Plate. The Precision Base Plate adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich, making working with detailed dies a dream.
For a fun twist, try adding a panel of colored card stock to the inside of a white card base. For today's card, I inserted Lemon Lime Twist.
