Haute Couture


Hi everyone,

It’s time for another CHF challenge over on the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog . This week the challenge is hosted by Ann Marie!

This week Ann Marie  has challenged us to Use Watering Coloring when you create your card or project.

I used to types of water coloring techniques to create my card. First off I masked the edges of my water color card for my background. I then stamped the Cornish Heritage Farms French Script using versamark ink, poured clear embossing powder over the top and heat embossed. I then used my Faber Castell Gelatos to water color over the top of the script background. Let this dry and then placed my card under a piece of photo copy paper and ironed over the heat embossing to remove the embossing.

I then stamped the Haute Couture stamp set onto water color card and water colored the image again with Gelatos.


Want to play along????

If you would like to play along with us of course we would love to have you!

To play create a card using CHF images. You can use either CHF digi or rubber stamps to create a card or project.... anything you like as long as the stamps are Cornish Heritage Farms. (Yes, they can be older stamps.)
Once you have created your card/project come back here and place a comment with a link to your card/project to this post so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keyword CHF54. We can't wait to see what you create!

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Design Teams blogs today so see what they created for this challenge.
