Just learned a new technique from the talented Kathy from Daily Maker. I always call her the Queen of Copics! (hope this is alright with you, Kathy?)
As it involves embossing which is one of my favourite, I had to give it a try. I used the HA Holiday Trees which was coloured with two different colours on one card and spritz with water. Somehow, I am not associated with this water spritz technique so much so that I had to do so many times to get to what I wanted-purr!
Once stamped on a piece of watercolour cardstock, I let it dry and heat embossed with clear powder and applied stickles randomly over the tree. I definitely love the effect of this technique as it brings out the colours of the trees.
My intention was to make a one layer card but it obviously did not come out well so I decided to take one of the sketch from Hero Arts. The ribbon on the blue card was stamped with HA Greatest Gift which I carefully cut the sentiment which I wanted or rather to fit into the size of the ribbon!
I am also entering these cards into the following challenge : Tuesday Trigger, Incy Wincy Designs, Create, CAS-ual Fridays
Below are more close-up photos.
It has been very unusual to have such a lovely weather over here in the month of November until yesterday. We were hit with hails and storm today. The wind knot today was predicted to be 8-9 and I can hear all the wind growling at this very moment and the garden chair flew into the pond!!
Have a nice day!
