Embossed resist with Magicals


Hi everyone, I've been playing with Lindy's magicals.
I watched one of Jennifer McGuire's videos and was inspired to have a go!
(I think I need to find some more open design background stamps as this one is a bit busy, although I really like it.)
I stamped the Cora Background stamp onto watercolour paper with versamark ink using my misti, then clear embossed it.

After spritzing with water I added magicals, I had lots of pots open so not sure what colours I ended up using!

I don't have many shadow die cuts but thought this one suited the card.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Allsorts, playing along with the create your own background option

Aud Sentiments, wet or dry embossing option

Make My Monday, frame it
Use a black border to make the colours pop.

 Simon Says Stamp Cora Background stamp; Lindys Magicals; versamark ink & clear ep; Thanks die out of it's packet so not sure of the brand; hammered cardstock base.

Thanks for visiting,

Cathy x

you've created a colorful background with multi-colors that's really stunning. I think by adding a frame totally showcase the artwork. Thank you for playing with us at MMM

Beautiful Cathy and I'm sure being the Magicals powders there will be some wonderful shimmer and shine, and the black backed die cut sentiment looks great over the top. x
