This paper texture looks raindrops falling gently on water creating waves… At least that’s what I though when I was looking the finished card for today’s post… It defo can look completely different when adding different ink colours or applying different techniques using the innovative Embossing Texture Plate Circle Doodles from One of a Kind release by Simon Says Stamps.
It can look like flowers, like wood, simple spirals… or more if you put your imagination to it. I’m not sure what the designer was thinking when they were creating the metallic embossing plate but different things comes to my mind when I see the beautiful pattern.
What I love most about this texture plate is the subtlety of the embossed texture. It allows you to create delicate and elegant impressions on paper.
How I made it?
Ok lets start on how I used the plate. The way it worked better was the easier.
- I set the embossing machineas if I was working with wafer or thinlits dies.
- I inked the plate with Simon Says Surf Blue Ink ( this step is not necessary I just wanted to add easily a hint of colour to the paper ) .
- I placed a piece of smooth white cardstock on top of the inked plate and I put the embossing plate on top as usual .
- To make a little bit of extra pressure I added a couple of cardstock sheets on top of the embossing plate
- I run all together through the embossing machine . It worked just fine.
- Then I simply die cut the embossed panel with the die ” I love you” fromFlowers for You Stamp Set and Dies .
- I stamped the sentiment from the coordinating stamp set usingSimon Says Stamp Black Ink on Bristol Paper
- I coloured the words using Nuvo water brushes and Nuvo Brush Scrip Pens (yellow and blue)
- I pasted the Stamped piece of cardstock with dimensionals behind the front panel making sure the sentiment was aligned with the aperture created by the die.
I also cut some flowers and leaves using Flowers for You Stamp Set and Dies and I pasted them down with dimensionals.
I added colour to all the images in this card using Nuvo water brushesand Nuvo Brush Scrip Pensand I applied some stitches at the edge of the card using my sewing machine.. you know I like to do that very often.
I splattered the ink of a Black Nuvo Aqua Flow Pen diluted with water.
That’s all! I hope you like this project and the idea.
