Step by Step Card Background Tutorial

Hi everyone,

I hope you are feeling fab and creative. I have a step by step for you today in which I create a card background using multi colour embossing technique ie. using a selection of powders on one project.
I really love the vintage shades that turned out on this card, which would be great for masculine recipients!



Step 1: I used a page out of an old book page for backing paper and then applied a 3D texture gel through a stencil with a palette knife tool. You could also use a heavy (thick) acrylic paint. This creates texture and gives a sticky surface for the embossing powders to stick to.




Step 2: I added pinches of three different embossing powders ; Heather, Oceanic and Champers, into the wet gel.




Step 3: I moved the paper around to enable the powders to cover the gel then shook any excess powder off.


Step 4: To melt the powders I used a heat tool which also helps to dry the gel .




To finish, I inked the edges and areas on the paper with black and blue ink pads, added die cut stars, trim, alpha stickers and highlighted  around the card with a white pen.






Thanks for reading and stay creative!
