New Technique - Thank you

Hi!  Diana here to share a semi-new technique I came up with.  It's inspired by clear embossing and watercoloring - but involves neither!  :) I just received the Memory Box Pennington Rose and was trying to figure out the best way to highlight the delicate lines.  I've been playing with some watercolors and I love the soft look.  Here I sponged Spun Sugar where the rose would be and also sponged some Evergreen Bough where the stems and leaves would be.  I then adhered the die cuts over the sponged areas.  I like the soft look!  I trimmed and matted all the layers using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and the MFT Blueprint 13.  I also embossed a layer with the Anna Griffin Foulard embossing folder. The fishtail banner is embossed in white with a sentiment from ODBD Cherry Blossom.  For extra dimensions, the banner and center layer is also popped up using large foam tabs.  Hope you like this and try it out!

Challenges I am playing in:


  1. BEAUTIFULLY done, Diana! Love the colors behind those blooms. The layering/embossing and diecut details are gorgeous! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge!

  2. I love this "spray paint" technique. It looks so modern and yet so soft.


Thank you so much for leaving a message!
