Hey, it’s Kelly here with a fun technique to share using the Triangle Background Fancy Die. I’m not sure if there is already a name out there for this technique, but I’m calling it trapped embossed watercolor.
I started out by die-cutting the triangle background from a piece of masking paper and adhering it to a piece of watercolor paper. Then I used the Pool and Green Hills Spray Inks mixed with a little water to paint in the triangles. These water-based sprays are great for creating a watercolor look!
Once it was completely dry, I covered the entire piece with VersaMark ink. Then I removed the mask and embossed the triangles with clear embossing powder. This resulted in a gorgeous shine over each triangle!
Then I die-cut a window using the Classic and Ornate Frame Cuts to create an opening for my sentiment. The sentiment was first heat embossed on watercolor paper and then I used the Green Hills Spray Ink once again to create a watercolor effect.
I also used the iron-off technique on the sentiment to remove all the embossing resulting in a completely smooth image. (Check out Jennifer’s card and video HERE for more information on the iron-off embossing technique.)
Thanks for joining me today — I hope you will give this technique a try!
