Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge – September 2016

Stampin' Up! Sketch ChallengeHello! I am so pleased to be back and sharing with the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! You may have noticed that we took last month off (August is just too busy already!) but we are back this month with a great challenge set by the gorgeous Mandy Barton! Although, we have no sketch! The challenge set to us was …. Anything Goes!

How scary! and I will admit that I have been wracking my brains on this one for most of the month, and actually only managed to create my project on Thursday evening! (and this blog post was only written at 8AM this morning, nothing like a deadline!) I am usually more organised, but this past week has been just crazy busy – I was at a team training event last weekend, and then my job has really kicked in this week too. Anyway, that’s enough of my moaning! Time for my card ….

Watercolour card using Frosted Medallions from Stampin' Up! UK for the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge

This stamp set was gifted to me last weekend, and although it had caught my eye in the catalogue it hadn’t found it’s way into my craft room – but my lovely team leader is just a little bit psychic and always managed to send me things that I either LOVE and use all the time, or things that I LOVE but haven’t managed to purchase yet! This medallion it just so pretty, and I couldn’t not heat emboss it as it’s first use!

Saying that, the heat embossing is a little bit special, and a mixture of clear and copper heat embossing. I heat embossed the medallion in Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and then while I still had the powder melted I added a few pinches of Copper Embossing Powder too.

The background was created using Rose Red, Sweet Sugarplum and Tempting Turquoise. I just love this watercolour technique, I think I have a video on it somewhere, will have a look and share later in the week.

Oh, and before I go, the last totally cool technique I have used on this card is using the Fine-Tip glue pen to create little raised dots, that are almost like water droplets. So pretty!
