Rainbow Watercolor 3D Embossed & Debossed Images

Rainbow Watercolor 3D Embossed & Debossed ImagesI used the Eclectic Bouquet 3D Embossing Folder to emboss 2 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panels of watercolor cardstock.

I 3D embossed one panel normally, but for the second panel, I first inked up the text side of the embossing folder using Obsidian Ink before embossing the cardstock.

Rainbow Watercolor 3D Embossed & Debossed ImagesI then watercolored the panels using Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set.

For the 3D embossed design, I colored the image that already had the inked background – for the other, I flipped over the panel to paint onto the debossed side. Once I was happy with the amount of color on the images, I left them to dry naturally.  Once the debossed panel was dry, I swiped over Obsidian Ink very gently to ‘color' in the background.

The sentiment was created using Far Out Phrases with Brushed Gold, Jet Black, and Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.

Designer's Tips!

Stamp and emboss the outline design with white embossing powder. Then, loosely color the images with ink sprays or watercolors. Use black and other colors around the edges to create a galaxy effect.

I really like the embossed and debossed look. And the 3D makes them not only nicer, but easier to color.
