Gold Embossing + Watercolor | Karen Reategui

Gold Embossing + Watercolor | Karen Reategui

Hello sweet friends! Today I’m over the Picket Fence Studios sharing a floral card. For this card, I’m featuring the Botan Peony Stamp, which is gorgeous and the sentiment is from the Lorynne Girl Stamp. I used Altenew Watercolors and WOW! Metallic Gold embossing powder.

Let’s begin! I stamped the Botan Peony onto watercolor cardstock with WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it using WOW! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder.

Next, I started coloring with the Altenew Watercolors. I have to mention that this stamp is just stunning!

 

Once it was dried, I fuzzy cut the Botan Peony and set aside. I die cut a 6×6 white panel and heat embossed the edges using WOW! Metallic Gold embossing powder. Additionally, I added gold thread to my panel. On top I placed the Botan Peony using foam tape.

 

Finally, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it with WOW! Metallic Gold embossing powder.

This was my card for today and I must say that it was my pleasure to color this stunning stamp! Click here to go to the Picket Fence Studios shop!

Have a marvelous and wonderful day!

Karen

    Wow this card makes me smile and I am so wishing I could get it in the mail! This is gorgeous! Such great work and I admire your water-coloring; every time I try to watercolor, it comes out horrible. I guess I need to practice more and get more comfortable with this medium. Anyhow, I love the gold accent and the embossing on your lovely card! Superb work and happy birthday to Picket Fence!
