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 choose the above sets to make this card: VIGNETTE: Eat Drink Be Merry, SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Happy, Sentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year
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!
