Did you know that you can emboss with water?! What!? I didn’t think it was possible, but I accidentally dripped water on a project I was Gold embossing, as I poured the powder, the water took it too and it embossed along with the Versamark!
So, of course I HAD to try it with JUST water, and you guessed it……it embossed! You can see the video of this card here. Here is a picture of my project:
To get the ‘silver’ look on the background, I used a Sponge Brayer and the Frost White Shimmer Paint and applied it to the Birch Background stamp from Stampin’ Up! On black the ‘white’ looks more silver, therefore this card has both Silver & Gold! Every time I say that, I want to break into song singing “Silver & Gold, Silver & Gold”! I ‘think’ it’s from Rudolph the cartoon, do you know?
I also embossed the tag with Gold and used the Banners Pick a Punch to get the tag perfect! For the Stamp set, I used the Beautiful World Bundle. LOVE this set!
