Peony Watercolour Card With Heat Emboss Resist

Hi stampers!  Today’s card showcases an amazing heat emboss resist technique with water colouring, using Stampin’ Up’s new Prized Peony stamp set.

I’m also participating in this week’s Freshly Made Sketches  challenge.   The challenge is to follow the sketch while keeping the project clean-lined and fresh.  What I love about this, is that there are so many ways to interpret the sketch and be creative!  With further ado, here is this week’s sketch.

Drum roll for the result please….

The card is made with a Whisper White base, matted with Old Olive card stock.  Shimmery White paper is used for main card face.  It was heat embossed with Versamark and White embossing powder, with the single flower from Prized Peony stamp set.  It was stamped twice.  The flowers are  water coloured in different shades of Melon Mambo ink and the splatters are with Old Olive ink.

The sentiment was also heat embossed and cut out with the Stitched Nested Label dies.  To finish the look, Gold metallic pearls and trim were added.

Here is a close-up of the card:
