DIY Patterned Paper | ft. Lawn Fawn "Blissful Botanicals" Emboss Resist
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Sometimes the right patterned paper isn't one that happens to be in your stash, so today I'm going to share with you how to do your own using heat embossing and Distress inks.
To begin, I prepped a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock with my powder tool. Mine is from EK Success, but you could use an old makeup brush and some kitchen flour. The idea is to prep the surface with the powder so that when you stamp using VersaMark, the embossing powder will only stick where you want the stamp to be.
I then used one of the frond stamps from Lawn Fawn's "Blissful Botanicals" stamp set to stamp a pattern over the paper. To fill in some of the larger blank spaces I used the small open flower. After stamping with the VersaMark I used ultra-fine white embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool.
I then took my Distress Inks (Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers) to create by background. Then I used some clean clear water to add splashes and create the distressed look.
For the greeting I used the same process and white embossing powder on black cardstock and popped that up on some foam tape for just a bit of dimension.
I then adhered the entire lot to a standard A2 sized card base.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. Don't forget to follow me over on the right sidebar so you don't miss any future posts. Toss me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
