I must say this Watercolor for Card Makers is an awesome class. I’m learning so much and sharing it with my daughter has been even better. Both of us are having a lot of fun learning about colors and how the work with one another. Once her cards are posted I will link them here in my blog so you can see what her take on the lessons were.
Today’s card is a Stamped Emboss Resist and Watercolor Wash Card. Kristina Werner taught us how to add ink on top of an embossed image, the ink just happens to be watercolor. I’ve practice this technique a couple of weeks ago and it took me a while but I got it down pack and my card came out really nice. You can check out my post on April 30.
For my new card, I wanted to create a male card. I don’t have many of those, I wanted to make sure I tried colors that were suited for men. I love blues, yellow, and coral. I also tried something new. ADDING STITCHING TO MY CARD!!! I’ve never done that before but I wanted to finally try it. It was exciting!
I love how the colors blended to make colors that weren’t in my original palette. When I added the yellow to the tip of the blue it create that pretty green. The same when I added the coral to the yellow, it created the orange. It was amazing.
Creating the background was pretty easy.
I used Impression Obsessions Honeycomb Stamp to create my background. I stamped it with VersaMark and embossed it with Stampin’ Up! clear embossing powder.
I used my Koi Watercolors, I used number 23, 24 and 8.
My vellum and card stock was attached with my small sewing machine. I had that sewing machine for two years and never used. I pulling it out to create this card and I’m so glad I did.
Guess what, I didn’t know how to use the sewing. I had to ask my daughter to help set up the machine. I thought that was funny and she loved teaching me.
All and all, my card came out the way I had hoped it would. I’m very pleased with the look. I hope you are too!

Your card is so pretty! I love how you blended the colors. This emboss resist technique is one that I haven’t had much luck with yet, but you’ve mastered it. Thank you for the sweet comments you left on my blog! In answer to your questions about the colors I used…they are all Ranger distress inks (peacock feather, dried marigold and peeled paint.)
“See you” in class!!!
Thank you Susie! It me quite awhile to get the emboss resist technique down pack. Just keep trying it and you will master it soon. After you master it you will say “why did this take me so long”! I have to get those Distress ink colors. Thank you for sharing. “See you” in class also!
