WWC 319 - Helen's Challenge : All things Feminine


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Watercooler Wednesday  and Helen is hosting a feminine theme.

The design team have some wonderful inspiration for you so I hope you can play along.

I'm still playing with Inka Gold pastes. I open them up every month or so to check they haven't dried out, add some glycerine if necessary and use them lol!

I used champagne and jade on my craft mat, spritzed heavily with water, then smooshed my cardstock through it.
When dry I embossed it using a Sizzix 3D leaf folder.

The sentiment was diecut, inked with versamark and heat embossed with Lindy's midnight gold powder.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

I went with the diagonal of yellow, big sentiment and watercolour (smooshed Inka Gold)

Let's Squash It, nature and watercolouring.
Mix it Up Challenge Blog, anything goes without the option of stamping this time.

Inka Gold; Sizzix 3D fallen leaves embossing folder; Simon Says Stamp you die; Couture Creations love die; versamark ink; Lindy's midnight gold embossing powder.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

This is lovely. What a gorgeous embossing folder and those soft color are so pretty. Thanks for the tip about adding glycerine to Inka Gold. Mine has dried out so bad.

The colours are so pretty Cathy and I love the 3D Fallen Leaves Embossing against the black base card, and the die cut sentiment looks great using that Midnight Gold Embossing Powder. A gorgeous card. x
