Ellen Hutson / WOW! Blog Hop



Today I'm part of a blog hop collaboration with Ellen Hutson and Wow! Embossing Powder!

I had a lot of fun going outside of my normal design box to make this card that has a mixed-media feel!

I started by creating an ink smooshed background on watercolour cardstock, then stamping the Gerbera Daisy with waterproof ink.

I used Zig Art & Graphic Twin Tip markers to add richness to the daisy petals and that's when the fun started!

I used my Wow! Embossing Pen to add embossing ink to the petals and then sprinkled Unicorn Magic powder over top and heated it. This powder is transparent with loads of sparkle - just perfect for adding interest without losing the petal details!

Next I used Turkish Nights on the daisy centre. This one is more opaque and also very sparkly.

To add sparkle on the edges of my panel, I rubbed them onto my WOW! Embossing Ink Pad to make them sticky. Then I added Unicorn Magic powder and heated it.

Finally, I used Black Twinkle powder for the sentiment. This powder has a lovely silver sparkle in it!

Here's a video:
