More Dry Embossing with Re-inker Watercolouring

Hi everyone.  Two more cards for September's Group of Seven technique - Dry Embossing with Re-inker Watercolour.  Once I started making these, it was hard to stop! :)

The card above was made for my friend, Nancy (scandiNancy creates) to celebrate her birthday which was a few weeks back.

I smooshed Distress Re-inkers (Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, Salty Ocean) with Cold Press Watercolour paper and left it to air dry.  I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink direct from stamp pad to the inside of the Areca Palm Embossing Folder (Altenew), on the debossed side.  Placed my dried, smooshed w/c paper and ran it through my Gemini Jr.  Turned out beautifully. :)  I completely forgot to take a photo before mailing it to Nancy.  She took the above photo for me. :)  Thanks friend!!

... and one more final card ...
This card was made with Distress Re-inkers:  Wilted Violet, Candied Apple, Antique Linen

I'm sending the above card to Triple B October Challenge (Birds, Butterflies, & Blooms).  I didn't use the optional mood board this time. :)


If you try out this technique, we'd love for you to share it on the Group of Seven blog.  There is a linky party set up near the bottom of the post.

Oh, my word, these cards are both so beautiful! Everything I've missed is so lovely and I'm sorry that I'll never catch up. This technique is the most intriguing thing I've seen lately and produces such gorgeous results. I have such an amazing birthday card from you on my dining room table and I want to thank you. I'm not sure when I'll be back to regular blogging.

Stunning cards Loll, the colours are so vibrant against the black, I must have a closer look at this technique, Cathy x

Linda said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! These look amazing!!!! The colours are so rich and intense, I love them. I need to give this technique a go xx

Bobby said...

My first response was 'ooooh' when I saw the leaves, Loll. They positively glow. I love the bright colors on the rose card. You have really mastered that technique.

Brenda in IN said...

These are just beautiful, Loll. The birthday card is so gorgeous with blues and greens. The bright colors on the next card just pop against the black. I loved the cards you made for the go7 too.

Pat said...

All I can say Loll is 'wow wow wow' what terrific results using this technique, and I just adore the leaves in the blue and two different greens, and the white sentiment just pops off the background. The second floral also looks beautiful and love the colour combination, and another great white die cut word as a wonderful contrast. x

Viv said...

Hope all OK with you Loll.
Playing catch up a bit as we had a few days away then only home a couple of days and got the WORST cold!
2 beautiful cards.
I soooooo need that gorgoeusly gorgeous Palm leaf die!x

Trina P. said...

Striking results with this technique. I especially love Nancy’s card with those beautiful cool colours. I would live to try this technique, but worried of staining my EFs. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Bonnie said...

Two more fantastic makes with this technique, Lolly! I love the beautiful leaves and how they stand out against the black. I'm sure Nancy treasures this. Your roses are so bright and beautiful! Awesome color choices, my creative friend!

HilaryJane said...

Love these, especially the first one. I have actually made some cards using this technique. I just need to find time to write a post. I hope I might achieve that this month. Thanks for the inspiration xx

Linda said...

Oh my, Loll, these two cards are so gorgeous. Marcia said the same thing about kind of addicting once you start. Not sure if I'm going to start. Lol...

TK said...

So GORGEOUS! I absolutely love this technique as the dark background sets off some pretty amazing texture and colors

Papercraft Boutique said...

Wow, both cards are fantastic, Loll! You've been doing an amazing job with this technique! The color combo is gorgeous against the solid black background for both cards! I love both cards, and I'm sure Nancy will treasure your card.
