MMSC #100 and SR #68




The technique to try this week for Technique Junkies is Dry Embossed Wash. I used this technique on the background pieces on this card. The sketch for this card came from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. The middle image is a technique from Stamp TV called embossed marble. This card is also going to the challenge at Stamp Royalty. The challenge there was to use watercoloring on your card. The dry embossed wash uses watercolor crayons and a water pen to do the background. The images is embossed, colored with the waterbrush and crayons and then coated with gesso. Also I have just become a member of the design team at Paper Temptress so the paper used in this card came from Paper Temptress. I used Blue Ice Sorbet, Purple Basis and Pink Basis for the background and matting.
