This week's Make it Monday over at Papertrey ink involves watercolouring embossed images. The great thing about using embossing powder before watercolouring is that the embossing powder helps the wet colours stay within the lines - a little more fool proof! :)
Here's Heather Nichols' video covering the technique as she makes a beautiful card:
I decided to grab my hexagon cover plate to make a the front of the card - it almost looks like a lattice. And I challenged myself to NOT use a sentiment, despite how much I wanted to! :) I attached the front aqua mist panel to a thin flap of the white card base using some Tombo Mono Multi glue - this stuff is great for thin beads of glue.
Here is another shot showing a better idea of the front panel:
Thank you to Betsy Veldman for this idea of using the cover plate 'bare' like this - she did a card (with more layers and more of the cover plate covered) but I pinned it a while back to use it as a jumping off point.
