Hi everyone! Erum here with a new project and video for the Creative Coloring with Erum video series. My project today features the embossed card with Pigment Ink magic! I have combined the letterpress technique with the regular inking over embossed edges technique for this card but using different color inks. I used a darker color for the letterpress look, and to highlight the embossed design, I used white ink.
Video: The Magic of Pigment Inks
You can watch the process video below or on YouTube. Please scroll down to read the step-by-step instructions.
- Apply Sapphire Pigment Ink on the Spring Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder. (on the backside with the text where the folder's name is).
- Mist the backside of a purple color cardstock and place it in the Spring Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder, dry side facing the inked side – run it through the embossing machine.
- Carefully open the folder to reveal an inked panel. Use a heat tool to dry the panel completely.
- Use a foam dauber, and apply Cloud White Pigment Ink with a light hand to the embossed design. Make sure to add more white to the bunched florals and lighter as you move outwards to add interest.
- Once done, dry the panel, place it in the embossing folder, and run it through the machine again to flatten the panel.
- Adhere the panel to the card base with Ultra Sticky Double-Sided Adhesive. Set aside.
- Die cut the word hello from Craft-a-Flower: Primrose Blossom Layering Die Set out of Sterling Glitter Cardstock.
- To match the glitter cardstock with the purple cardstock, use the Deep Iris Artist Alcohol Marker and add a layer of color over it.
- Die-cut 3-4 more sentiments out of purple color cardstock and adhere it underneath the glitter die-cut layer to make it sturdy. Adhere to the card front.
So, how was today's design? I hope you are inspired and that you will recreate this easy card and share it with us!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
