Cornelia Prepares for New Years!


I had enough of Christmas cards and New Years is certainly a card worthy event, so why not prepare for it in time.....


I started with watercolor paper and heat embossed the sentiment on it:

Sprinkled blue and purple Brushos on it - you see you need very little, looks like little specks of pepper....

Mist it with water - the paper warps, so I weighed it down with acrylic blocks: 

Let it dry - of course I have no patience, so I used my heat gun to speed it up.
If you look closely you see little specks of dried paint on the embossed letters - I wiped them off with a damp cloth - see the picture on your right:

Heat embossed the Champagne glasses in silver on a piece of scrap paper:

I fussy cut them, colored them with Copics and mounted them with foam tape on the card:

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you don't have Brushos you can just use regular watercolors, that works quite as well! 
You can visit the STAMPlorations blog HERE and see what goodies are waiting there for you! Like the new stamp set Sugar Rush that is available now!

Happy Holidays to all of you!
