emboss resist technique

Well, thats nearly a whole week gone by without posting,
so without further ado, I'm going to share a recent watercolour technique class.

The first was using emboss resist,
so I stamped with versamark, and heat embossed with white powder.

Added some ink to a tile or block, spritzed with water,
and did a wash, starting from the centre outwards,
to give the flower a darker centre.

It was a challenge, as everyone wanted to be too controlled,
and spend too much time, whereas its meant to be quick and free!

I accidentally got some blue ink splats on my finished card,
so I added some more to look like it was part of the plan teehee.

So, that didn't go according to plan......
pop by to see if the next one did!......

Meantime have a great weekend


  1. This looks good. Love the accidental on purpose blue bits. Looking forward to the next sample. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Your card turned out so pretty with that great technique, and I love the blue spatters too :)

  3. This is just so beautiful! Love the ombre shading you've created with the fab watercolors. Lovely darker shade at the center, fading out to the softer tones. The blue spatters were a very happy accident! Well done!! TFS & Happy wkend.

  4. Go waterbrush! I haven't tried resist embossing in a loooong time. Mine never looked as cool as this. I like the random blue splatters, what a happy accident.

  5. AWESOME accidental splattering and wonderful watercolour washes!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
