Today I'm pairing heat embossing with the still hot trend of watercolors. Why do they work so well together? Well that raised edge of the embossing works as a great barrier to keep you from getting (too) messy with your watercoloring. It can also help pool color there where you would expect shadows to be.
Here's my card:
I was going for a timeless, clean feel. When I chose that damask PP it somehow reminded me of old wallpaper so I tore it to give a vintage touch. Another tip... spritz the PP lightly before tearing for a softer edge. And also, when you tear, the edge of the paper you pull towards you will look like mine does. The other torn edge will have the core (often white) of the paper exposed. Which you choose to use depends on the the look you want!
Hope you enjoyed today's card. I'd love to hear if you're as enthralled with heat embossing as I am.
