Rewind with Nichol

Hi there! Nichol here today with a Designer Series card showcasing the brand new Rewind Stamp Set. Sometimes a simple design can pack a big punch simply with the colors you use and the layout of the card. The black stamped and embossed borders along each side of the watercolored design make the colors really pop showing off the resisted stamping.


I stamped three images from the Rewind Stamp Set on watercolor paper with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder before applying four colors of Distress Ink over the design (I used Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks). The embossed areas resist the ink. I dropped water all over the design using a paintbrush. The Distress Inks wick away creating a great distressed watercolored background.

Once the background is completely dry, take a dry rag or paper towel to the embossed areas and gently wipe away any ink that may have pooled on the embossing. The embossing will be much more vibrant.
I stamped two borders from the Basic Borders Stamp Set on black cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed each with black embossing powder for tone-on-tone borders.
A scattering of sequins completes the design.
