New Handmade Card Making Technique - Pigment Sprinkles and Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set | Stampin Up

Today I want to share with you a fun new technique using pigment sprinkles to create beautiful watercolor backgrounds. I am also using a lot of heat embossing in Black, White, and Clear to really enhance the elements for this card. I use the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set from Stampin Up for the images. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and try making this card.

When using Pigment Sprinkles, you will need a tray or cookie sheet of some sort to contain the pigment sprinkles to a small area. They can make a big mess quickly. Also keep the container closed and only open the flap covering the holes.

1- On the pieces of watercolor paper shake out some pigment of 3 colors of your choosing. I used a red, yellow, and blue. Use the aqua painter and add water to the pigment sprinkles by painting over the colors. Start with the lighter color first and then blend colors together to create beautiful designs. You can add more pigment if you want a darker color. Clean the aqua painter between each watercolor paper. Air dry or use a heat tool.
2- Stamp images – First rub Embossing buddy over the water color paper. Use VersaMark ink and stamp the image of the girl pointing to the sky in the center of the paper. Add Black embossing powder and tap off the excess. Heat with a Heat tool.
Repeat with the other images: Boy with airplane and Boy with telescope.
3- Cut out each image with the 1 ½” x 3” Stitched Rectangle Die with a Die Cutting Machine. You can use a small piece of tape to hold it in place.
4- To give each piece a shinny look, begin by placing the watercolor paper on a scrap piece of paper to create a handle. Press the VersaMark ink pad over the entire image/watercolor paper. Add clear embossing powder all over and tap off any excess. Then heat with a heat tool. Repeat for the other 2 images.
5- On Basic Black Cardstock rub a dryer sheet over the paper, stamp your greeting with VersaMark ink, add white embossing powder and heat. Use the 1” x 2 ½” Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out the greeting.
6- Use the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder and emboss the Smoky Slate Cardstock. Turn the paper to the back side (looks more with tire tracks) and adhere to the Basic Black card front.
7- Add the 3 watercolor paper pieces to the top of the horizontal card front place them so the top, left, and right sides have a similar size border.
8- Wrap 30” of White Bakers Twine around the card front under the images. Tie a bow on the left side.
9- Add the greeting with dimensionals to the center of the card below the images. If needed move the bow to the left side of the greeting.
10- Add the card front to the Whisper White cardbase. Then add either rhinestones or silver sequins around the greeting.

All Done!
