Sparkly Striped Backgrounds

Welcome to WOW! Embossing Powder!

Hey everyone, how are you? Have you checked out the new release inspired by Cuadritos de Colores? In today’s Exploring Embossing, I’ve created a striped background by using washi tape, and I’ve used the gorgeous new “The Violetera” as the main colour.

I’ve also got a Reel showing you how I made this card over on Insta – come check it out!

To make my background, I grabbed some different widths of washi tape, and placed them horizontally across my card panel, spacing them to create stripes of different heights. I added embossing ink below the first piece of washi and added The Violetera, then set with my heat tool. I repeated the process with each taped-off section to create embossed stripes of of different colours (the colours I used from top to bottom were Strawberry Sparkle, Rosy Cheeks, Grape Fizz and The Violetera).

Once I’d made my background panel, I stamped my sentiment from The Greeting Farm’s “Anya in Japan” stamp set between two of the embossed sections. I then added the Anya and flowers that I had stamped, coloured and fussy cut, using foam squares. The Copics I used were:

Hair: 100/C9/C7/C5

Flowers: RV14/RV13/RV11

Berries: RV66/RV53

Kimono: V17/V15/V12, RV17/RV14/RV13/RV11

Skin: E55/E53/E51, R20

Fan: E44/E43/E42/E41

I love how the four colours really complement each other and bring all the sparkle! I hope you like it, too!

Thanks for joining me again today for another Exploring Embossing – see you next time!
