Again...at last!

Hello my friends,

For some time now I have been thinking about having a go at embossing an image and the colouring it. Thinking is as far as it has got until I saw the challenge this week at CASology. 2 ideas came to mind straight away and the first one was embossing this butterfly image from Uniko and then colouring. So at last I got down to giving this a go. I was going to use copics but opted for water colouring for a more free and easy look.


I embossed the image in vanilla powder then used a variety of water colours just letting the paints take me where ever they wanted-this is what I love about water colouring, you can just go with the flow! A few splashes to finish. I really enjoyed making this and went onto make another card using this technique.

I am hoping to get idea 2 done before the deadline!

Have a fun day x

    I'm sorry I'm a bit late commenting. Lots of traveling for work and think I've got a mild version of something giving headaches but no fever. But luckily the weekend isn't over yet! Perhaps I can manage to drag myself into the craft room tomorrow:)
