Hi everyone. Today is the start of the HLS November CAS Challenge. A big thanks to Toni for this awesome challenge idea ... I had so much fun with this!
I used Inka Gold wax paste for my card today. First I sprayed watercolour paper with three colours of watercolour sprays (yellow, orange and pink). Once dry, I embossed with a script embossing folder, and then used a stiff sponge to add inka gold on top, highlighting the embossing. Once dry, buffing the surface with a soft cloth or paper towel, brings out the shine. So simple to do.
I made 26 cards using this technique. All of them started with the same watercoloured background, then I used a variety of embossing folders, highlighted with inka gold and then added a simple white die-cut. I'll include a few pictures of some of the other cards ... they are all made the same way. I made these and sent them off to thank my wonderful friends that will be joining me as Guest Designers for my Mixed Media Christmas Tag event that starts in just two days from now. I hope you'll come back to check out the tag event and considering joining in. There will be lots of wonderful inspiration from my talented Guest Designers, as well as prizes. Come join in the fun!!
Here's some more of these cards.
