I am sorry to see the Online Card Class Mask-erade end...it has really gotten my creative juices going! I am going to have to go back to previous classes and rewatch lessons!
I had fun pulling out my watercolor paper today! I used three different embossing powders--clear, white, and Ranger Pearl Silver. (The last one is shown in the photo below--it has a beautiful pearl shine.) One word of caution--clear embossing powder does not behave well with regular watercolor paper--it takes on the yellowish cast of the paper.
Below are the four different pieces after watercoloring:
I haven't decided how to finish them off yet...
For the card above, I stamped a sentiment on vellum and heat embossed with Ranger Platinum embossing powder.
Since the card was a bit warped, I mounted it on a piece of fun foam and then adhered to the card base.
I added a few butterflies colored with the same colors.
Thanks for taking a look!
