Teal Triptych (for Creative Expressions)


My final -ptych card using this month’s featured stamps from Creative Expressions is another play on the tone-on-tone theme. Featuring heat embossing, iridescent watercolour and careful colour choices, this is a simple, relatively quick, and effective card for any occasion.

You will need:
Creative Expressions Singles Stamps: Desert Daisies / Regal Iris / Rose Entwined
Creative Expressions Umount A5 Stamp Plate: All Occasions Sentiments
Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder: Blue Watercress Blaze / True Detail White
Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent Watercolour: Holly Leaf
Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue
Foundations A4 Card: Coconut White / Teal
Ranger Perfect Medium Ink Pad: Clear
Ranger Tim Holtz Waterbrush: Fine

  1. Line up the three flower stamps on an acrylic block and ink up with Perfect Medium before printing onto Coconut White card.
  2. Cover with the Blue Watercress Blaze embossing powder and tap off the excess, returning it to the jar.
  3. Heat set the embossing powder and allow to cool.
  4. Using the waterbrush, add Holly Leaf iridescent watercolour to colour the images. Vary the dilution of the paint to vary the colour tone.
  5. Cut to size and mat onto Teal card stock using the Cosmic Shimmer Glue. Glue onto your card blank.
  6. Cut a piece of Teal card stock the same width as the mat and ¾” high and stamp the sentiment in the centre using the Perfect Medium ink.
  7. Cover the sentiment with True Detail White embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat set as before.
  8. Affix to the card with Cosmic Shimmer Glue.
