it’s time for the first 2020 Rudolph Days Challenge, hosted by maureen, where we encourage you to create christmas cards/creations during the last week of every month until November. you only need to submit one entry to be eligible for a generous prize.
for my DT card, i used a technique i am calling redesigning designer paper. i wanted to use the taylored expressions holly embossing folder but with something other than a plain background. see below for steps. I finished off the card with impression obsession die cut holly embellishment and a creative expressions die cut sentiment with red cardstock.
photo heavy tutorial:
step 1: choose paper
step 2: emboss
(if lightweight paper is used, avoid cutting through by placing copy paper behind DP)
step 3: choose inks, ink up brayer
(before brayering on paper, brayer on teflon sheet to evenly distribute ink)
step 4: brayer embossed paper with light pressure
step 5: brayer another layer, lightly
step 6 continue, lightly, until you’re happy with colour intensity
step 7: use marker to colour details
step 8: use leftover inks to splatter background
step 9: spritz leftover inks on teflon sheet
step 10: press watercolour paper onto spritzed inks
I’d love to see your creations using this technique. thanks for popping by.
