Aquarelles, Inks and Dry Embossing (Guest Design Team)


Hi it is Cathy here again, I am so excited as today I want to share a video with you showing how to dry emboss a stamped image without the need for a light box! Whilst creating this project I discovered that the Aquarelle pencils work really well on pearl coated  card stock; when water is added the colours move around easily making blending a sinch!

 This card has been created using Mixed Media Aquarelles and Ink sets.


I love how easy the Aquarelle and Ink sets make it to create a card with colours that tone well together and  it is an added bonus being able to colour my seam binding to match my flowers with the Stampers Big Brush pen to get a totally co-ordinated look.


  • Mix and Match Mixed Media Aquar elles and Ink Red (Pencils 119, 125, 126 and Stampers Big Brush Deep Scarlet Red 219)
  •  Green (Pencils used 166, 168 and Stampers Big Brush May Green 170)
  • Penny Black Wishes 30-103 and Flowers Sweet 30-096 Transparent Stamp Sets. Tools: Ten Seconds Fine point and rounded embossing tools and embossing mat set (if you don’t have these any parchment embossing ball tool should work).


I had such fun making this card that I have created two other cards as a bonus that can be seen on my blog at:

Just to whet your appetite here is a sneak peak at one of the cards I have created.


 Thanks for joining me today, I will be back soon with another project to share!


Hugs Cathy



Cathy has crafted from an early age and began stamping again 13 years ago when a friend showed her a handmade card. That lead to a trip to her local craft shop for supplies and  she was asked if she would be interested in teaching classes there; so that is what she did on her days off work. She no longer teaches at the local shop but has found a whole new community of friends over the internet through blogging. In May 2011 Cathy joined Penny Black's design team and has created guest projects for Flowersoft and Papercraft Inspirations magazine, she has also been a hostess for Hero Arts.
