Hello There!

Hello there!

Mayuri here to share a card using the Topography stamp set!

That large topographical background is soooo versatile, and you can do so many different techniques with it, as demonstrated by the DT during release week! I chose to white heat emboss it onto a panel of white cardstock before applying a wash of colour ;-)

I took various ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and roughly scribbled each colour at the top of the embossed panel before spritzing with water. The water allowed the colours to blend with each other, but also run down to the bottom of the panel, creating streaks of colour...

Before the colours became too watered and blended with each other I heat set the panel and trimmed it down to the same size as my card base. I adhered it straight down and set it aside to work on the next element, which was the die-cut sentiment. This was created using the Hello There die, and cut from some black cardstock a few times and adhered together to make a thicker embellishment.

I adhered the die-cut element to the card front and finished off with some Gold Mix sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Oaky, I am someone who loves color. The more colorful the better, so do you think I like this one or not? Love it! I love that you used my favorite color, yellow, because not enough people use yellow. I love the background and I love how it looks like the colors are dripping down the card. I love how you embossed it too. My embossing gun did double duty as a defrositng gun for my freezer (long story) and I blew it out. Now I need to buy a new one, then I can emboss again. Great card!
