Hi, for the Spring Fling refills rainbow backgrounds I add some heat embossing and remove colour from the watercolour rainbow. Visit Part One to learn how I made the watercolour rainbow backgrounds with refills. (And see two other cards with a Date Night rainbow).
Emboss and lift colour
First, stamp the sentiment from Just Soar stamp set with embossing ink, and heat emboss with Raven (black) embossing powder. Next, stamp and heat emboss the butterfly in Icicle (clear) embossing powder.
Make sure to use the Magic Powder bag first. The anti-static powder helps prevent any stray embossing powder from sticking to places you don’t want, because you don’t want any embossed fingerprints.
Work with a clean cloth (this is important!! – watch the video to see why) and spray the rainbow panel with water to lift the colour away. I use XL watercolour card that can handle a lot of water! The colour underneath the embossed areas will not be affected.
Leave the background dry. Adhere the stamped and die-cut butterflies flat to the card between the embossed butterflies.
Die-cut my black and white card layers for both cards with the Pinkfresh Studios Slim Stitched rectangle die set. The butterfly embossed panel – largest solid die from the rainbow card and largest stitched die from black card.
For the other card, I use the smallest stitched die for the rainbow card, the largest solid die from black card, and the largest stitched die from white card.
Adhere the butterflies flat to the card, trim off any overhanging wings and use on the other side of the card to fill in any gaps.
Scrap Lift Card
I heat emboss the small flower onto the “scrap lift” coloured card (2:04 in the Part One video) and foam mount around the sentiment. Attach both to slimline card bases made from Not Your Mama card stock.
