Watercolor Background and Embossing Powder Painting

Hello and Welcome to My Studio!

As my name is Artsystamper,  I do have a tendency to get pretty artsy with my cards sometimes.

This is an example of that. The vivid colors in the background just burst with the addition of embossing powder painting.

I used Aqua Flow Markers by Nuvo to do the first layer of colors, after I stamped with Versamark ink and a gorgeous stamp set called, Lovely Magnolia. I then "painted" with Stampendous embossing ink. I poured Amethyst, Red Apple, Venus Violet, and Antiquities Embossing Powders by Sparkle N Sprinkle, and heat set them one color at a time.

I sponged the edges of the card with Versafine Clair ink, using a Jumbo Dauber. I also inked the edges of the torn vellum layer with the ink. 

In the video I also show how to create the sentiment, using the Aqua Flow Markers to create a watercolor background that I cut with the "love" die, by Tonic Studios.

All of the products mentioned are available in the Sparkle N Sprinkle store.

I will be adding the video when it comes out on Monday on the Sparkle N Sprinkle YouTube Channel, so stay tuned.

 I am entering this card in the following challenges:
