Hello, it’s Debby here. Today I have a video (see below) showing step by step how to heat emboss and watercolor the beautiful Vintage Teacup set. To get started I stamped the cup and saucer in clear embossing ink and gold heat embossed before die cutting with the matching dies. I also stamped the sweet flowers from the Vintage Teacup set on the cup and saucer in Blush ink.
I then took to my watercolors to give a gentle pastel pink gradient to the teacup with pretty flowers reminiscent of the ones my Mother and Grandmother used to have. After watercoloring I went in with colored pencils to define the details and add a few shadows.
I gold embossed the sentiment on a panel of watercolored card with softly torn edges. Then I added a light blue watercolored background with paint and gold splatters. I stamped the steam in Mocha ink on both the teacup and background. Next I added all the elements to the card with foam adhesive and on to a kraft card base. Finally I added a few sequins to accent.

Have a great day and I'd be interested to hear whether you or your family have vintage teacups.
