Hello everyone today, Oleksandr Azarov on the Lindy’s blog today and we will create a postcard with a watercolor background and embossing elements.
First, you need to decide on the palette. For my postcard I chose: Golden Sleigh Bells, Azure Sea Asters, Buccaneer Bay Blue sprays. Also, to create the background, we need a transparent film (I used the plastic backing from a set of stamps).
On the plastic substrate, I apply the sprays randomly. To do this, you can use a brush I applied using the tube in the sprayers.
Cover the base of the card with a film with applied sprays and smooth the surface with your fingers to mix the sprays and get additional shades. (For softer, smoother transitions, pre-wet the base with clean water.)
After I removed the film I added some splashes using Cattail Copper Brown shimmer spray.
When the background is completely dry using a stamp, transparent embossing ink and powder: Morning Glory Azure , Salmon Gold I add texture to the background. (After applying ink, randomly sprinkle with two shades of powder and bake.)
Now that our background is ready I will create decorative elements. To do this, I stamped the leaf using embossing powder COOL MAN COPPER. randomly painted with sprays and cut out.
Also for my postcard, I picked up a few cut-out paper elements (flowers and a hoop). The flowers were randomly coated with sprays that I had previously used to create the background and color of the leaves and added powder for embossing. I added an inscription on a strip of black paper using embossing powder COOL MAN COPPER. (I love it)
Now when all the components are ready, it remains to glue the background to the base of the postcard and glue the prepared elements (I will glue them on a volumetric tape). And now the postcard is ready.
- Embossing powder:Morning Glory Azure , Salmon Gold COOL MAN COPPER
- Starburst Shimmer Sprays: Golden Sleigh Bells, Azure Sea Asters, Buccaneer Bay Blue, Cattail Copper Brown
- Transparent ink, stamps, cardboard elements, bulky tape.
Thank you and see you soon!
