Can you imagine a Tuscan vineyard? You have to in order to appreciate this card. Unfortunately, the image is not as clear as I would like. I heat embossed it with black embossing powder. Consequently, until your eyes adjust, it looks like a black circle. See for yourself.
Stamps: Tuscan Vineyard, Healing Hugs
Paper: Daffodil Delight A-2, Basic Black 5 1/4 x 4, Watercolor 5 x 3 3/4
Ink: Gorgeous Grape, Versamark
Pigment Sprinkles: Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green
Techniques: Heat Embossing, Watercolor
Accessories: Black Embossing Powder, 1" Circle Punch, Embossing Buddy, Dimensionals, Adhesive
The first step is to prepare the watercolor background with your pigment sprinkles. Tap a few sprinkles of each color around your paper. Spritz with water and maneuver the colors around until you are happy with it. Set this aside to air dry completely before stamping on it.
I then took my dry background, used my embossing buddy to prepare it for embossing, and then stamped my image and sentiment with Versamark. I added the black embossing powder and heat set it.
I stamped the Toscana Vigneto stamp with Gorgeous Grape and punched it out using my 1" circle punch. I added it with dimensionals.
Lastly, I layered the watercolor paper onto my black card stock and then adhered it to my Daffodil Delight card base.
