How to create a simple layout with metal dies

Hi gang! I take the time to wish you a wonderful 2020 year! May this year be the best for you.

I'm back for the last time. I loved creating for you during these years, but I must now take time for myself. I hope I have inspired and motivated you to create your own watercolor background. This is still what I enjoy doing the most.

For my last post, I created a simple layout that I made with a watercolor background and metal dies.
You just need a watercolor paper, inks and metal dies. 

First of all, create a freestyle watercolor background and when it's dry, you can cut pieces with metal dies. I choose snowflake dies.

I use a white paper to keep the punch on the die-cuts. Stay simple. Just add a small embellishments and a title.

3 ways to use white embossing powder for beginners

Hi Lindy’s lovers!

Valerie here on the Lindy’s blog today and I’m back with a layered layout. I have used white embossing powder in 3 different ways and I have created a spectacular design. Very simple for beginners.

P1170403 

Step 1: As usual, I started with a thin coat of clear gesso over my patterned paper.
Step 2: I stamped with versamark here and there on my background. I used white embossing powder to create a pure white leaves on my paper.

Step 3: I used 3 colors of spray to create a watercolor background to make the white foliage pop. (Technique 1)
TiffanyLou Blue, Tea Pot Purple and Banff Blue (squirt)

Step 4: Also, I stamped some flowers and leaves with versamark on watercolor paper. I embossed them in purely white. After that, I used the same colors of my background to color my flowers.

You have a fabulous fuzzy cut. (Technique 2)

P1170394 

Step 5: I tried to use embossing powder on a paper flower. Don't heat too long in one place and it will work. (Technique 3)

P1170396 

Step 6: You just have to place all your elements and put cardboard under a few of the flowers to create a superposition effect.

September challenge on More Than Words

Hi everyone!

Long time no see!

Word Inspiration - ORIGINS
Creative Challenge - YOUR COUNTRY COLOURS
 
My ORIGIN is Canada. My boy proudly wears his hat with the maple leaf, that is the canadian flag symbol, during our trip to New-Brunswich this summer.
I decided to interpret this challenge using the COLOURS of my country's flag (White and red) 
Also, I used the Lindy's squirt whose color is "Oh Canada Crimson"
