Coming up Roses

I am so glad to be guest designer at Arty Divas this time.  Check out the challenge here:  artydivaschallenge

A badge for you!
Oh I just love this and had such fun making it.

I have been going through my stash and trying to use stuff I had forgotten about (you know how it is).  I discovered Infusions which I had bought at a show last year and not really known how to use.  So I looked at a couple of colour burst tutorials (Infusions is a similar product only not so bright) and then have spent the last few days experimenting.

I embossed the card, spritzed it with water, allowed time for it to properly wet, then with Infusions powder on a dry paintbrush just sprinkled it onto the appropriate areas.  The powder activates when it gets wet.  Then I used a water brush to draw out the colour into the shape of the embossed roses and leaves.  I only used 2 colours of Infusions, but they have grains of other colours in them which makes a stunning effect.   CLICK on pic for close up look.

I have posted a couple of items already using this product.  BUT my fave has to be this one.  I would like this made into fabric for a summer dress!  So gorgeously feminine and romantic with an arty feel.

Here is the card with the uncoloured EF:

EF: Couture Creation
Colour: Infusions (only 2 colours)
Tag die: unknown
Sentiment stamp: mag freebie Papercraft Inspirations
Also:  Floss, silver pen, gem

Wow. This is stunning. Amazing the difference between the before and after. I really do need to get some of those and have a play.

I'm so glad you showed the embossing folder because it helped me to understand better. This is really lovely. You did an excellent job. [Bunny]

It is kinda like Brushos. Which I seem to always use the SAME colors because I love them. [Bunny]

Congratulations on your GDT spot Carol, and this is an amazing card - you have really rocked the infusions here, with a magnificent result - I can understand why it is your favourite so far :)
Stay safe

Stunning Carol. It certainly would be wonderful fabric. Adding the little tag greeting allows the pattern to shine
