This is a simple way to create a patterned sheet that can be used as a background panel or for die-cutting sentiments or flowers or butterflies or whatever takes your fancy…
All you need is some kitchen roll, a water spritzer and one or more pigment powders (Brusho, Ken Oliver Colour Burst, PaperArtsy Infusions etc), along with some card and liquid glue to mount it.
I like heat embossing and I like Copic colouring, but they don’t get on too well together. With the possible exception of clear embossing powder, the usual advice is that colouring over embossing powder will damage your nibs. But I wanted to be able to use the two together, so it was time for an experiment.
It’s nice to go back to basics sometimes and that’s just where we’ve started in the Copic Jumpstart class run by Sandy Allnock: colour wheels. Not just the usual “here’s a colour wheel, this is how you use it”, but “here’s a colour wheel, now go make your own”.
Testing out a new technique for creating backgrounds with Distress ink, Perfect Pearls and an embossing folder.
(Note to self: remember to actually post things and not just leave them in my drafts folder.)
