Today, Oleksandr Azarov is with you, and I will show you the process of creating a card with bright colored stripes and the effect of resistance.
To start, I chose the necessary materials: the basis for the postcard, a sheet of watercolor paper, ink and embossing powder, stamps and sprays.
A geometric image was used on the card using transparent ink and embossing powder – CHALK IT UP . I cut the same image on watercolor paper after cutting to fit a postcard. In the absence of stamping of the first and second images, it is important not to change the location of the stamp. For this, it is very convenient to use a stamping tool.
After our watercolor image is ready, we draw it with alternating stripes equal to 1 cm and 0.5 cm. Cut and leave strips 1 cm wide, color them. Also for convenience, the stripes can be numbered.
For drawing, I chose six shades of sprays (depending on the number of stripes):
- Silent Night Silver , Limor Webber’s Time Travel Teal, Tibetan Poppy Teal , Whale Watch Blue, Tainted Love Teal, Azure Sea Asters
and transferred them to the blanks. Since an embossed powder image has already been printed on the stripes, it will appear after applying the spray resistance effect.
After the strips have completely dried, I paste them onto the base of the postcard using foam tape. It is very important that the drawing (stamping) on the basis of the repeated drawing on the strip.
Next, I make an inscription. To do this, I chose powder for embossing: SILENCE IS GOLDEN, CHALK IT UP . I stamped a large inscription on white cardboard and cut out a smaller one on a strip of black cardboard.
The inscription was pasted using foam tape as well.
And now when our card is ready to add a few decorative stones.
Using this technique you can create any color combinations. I was really fascinated by the process of playing with colors.
- Embossing powder: CHALK IT UP , SILENCE IS GOLDEN
