Beautiful Watercolour and Emboss/Resist Technique – Stampin’ Up!

Hi my Stampin’ Friends,


I made this Card just over two weeks ago for a Water Colour Challenge on Facebook that was set by my Upline Sam.  I loved this so much that I wanted to show you the Water Colouring and Emboss/Resist Technique.  I love water colouring and it is such an easy technique that I know you will all love it too!  

The FREE Sale-A-Bration Delicate Details Photopolymer Stamp Set is such a beautiful one, in that there are lots of way in which you can use it to make different projects.  

You can choose this Stamp Set as your FREE GIFT during Sale-a-Bration for a qualifying spend in my Online Shop of £45.  Just choose this at the checkout and Stampin’ Up will include it in your order.

So the emboss/resist technique is achieved by placing your Stamps onto a clear block and using the Versamark Pad (which is really like a glue) to stamp your image onto Watercolour Card but do remember to use your Embossing Buddy first. (The Embossing Buddy is rubbed over any Cardstock before heat embossing to ensure there is no residual grease on it). You then add any of the Stampin’ Emboss Powders which could be the clear, white, silver, gold or copper.  The Stampin’ Up Heat Tool is used to dry the image you have created and as it sets you will see the colour change.  It never fails to impress me!  I love seeing the images come to life before my eyes!  

You will need to leave this to set and dry for a couple of minutes before you start your water colouring.  You can water colour over your images using any of the Stampin’ Up Classic Ink Pads and Aqua Painters.  

To show you how to do the water colouring technique I have made a video which I hope you will enjoy.  Beautiful!  

I am certain that after watching my video you will want to make a card using this technique.
