Hi there, it's Gaby and today's tutorial is about making a background with markers and embossing powder. I will be showing how to make the card below; it may look complex, but it's easy to do.
I started by creating my background and used Bristol paper because I wanted to use my Tombow markers to "watercolor". The Bristol paper is cut to 4-1/4x 5-1/2.
I used a Winnie & Walter "Kindness" stamp set and some Versamark ink to stamp multiple leaves to create my background.
Then I used white embossing powder on the paper and heat set it.
Next I added some color with my markers and just put them in different areas and used a water brush to blend them.
Once I added a little pink and blended it all, I grabbed some metallic gold to add splatters.
Then I stamped the sentiment in gold embossing powder on vellum.
I heat set it and cut it into a banner shape. I used a Tombow glue pen to trace behind the embossing so the glue would be invisible from the front.
I weight the vellum down with some acrylic blocks to let the glue dry.
Finally, I taped the card front to a top folding notecard.
That's it, you're done! I hope this post was helpful and that you have a chance to try some of these techniques. Happy crafting!
