Couture Creations DT Projects: October #1

Hello again!
Welcome back for more Couture Creations inspiration!
Today I am  sharing with you a cool technique to try with any of our fabulous embossing folders.
Here’s my finished project…..

Gorgeous, huh?!!

And as usual, it’s another super easy one to recreate!
Here’s how……

  1. Emboss your cardstock (or quality watercolour paper) using your favourite Couture Creations Premium Embossing Folders.                                   I used The Marriot Collection: Great Fubu.

 2. Stamp over the raised/embossed image with your embossing ink. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder.

 3. Dust away excess powder with a stiff bristle brush. Apply heat to powder until all particles are completely melted away & allow to cool for five minutes.

4. Use watercolour paint, or spray inks, to cover straight over the embossed areas – so easy! (No fancy painting skills required!) Allow to dry.

 5. Cover cardstock with baking paper & on a low-medium heat setting, iron in a circular motion until the clear embossing ‘melts away’. Be sure to follow all safety instructions when using iron.

 You are now left with the embossed cardstock in it’s original colour & a fabulous painty background that doesn’t detract from the embossed pattern. 

 Love it! A really stunning effect that you can try today!
I'd love to see your creations with this technique, 
Please post them on the Couture Creations Facebook page for everyone to admire!
Thankyou for visiting.
 til next time,

Happy Arty Days!
