I am absolutely OBSESSED with the new Indian Background Stamp from the March release at Erin Lee Creative! I immediately thought of gold embossing and I knew I wanted to pair it with some older coordinating products! 






I started with a piece of A2 sized cardstock and stamped the Indian Background Stamp with Versamark ink and embossed it with Ranger Gold embossing powder. I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors straight from the pans and added a wash of color over the background. I wanted bold colors, so I let the background dry and repeated the process twice more to get deeper color. The Incredible India stamp set pairs PERFECTLY with the background stamp - and I just love elephants! I stamped the elephant and colored it with my watercolors and used the coordinating die to cut out the image and glue it to the right side of my card. I die cut the You Are Incredible word die from white cardstock so that it would really pop! 






I like to make multiple cards at once - especially with watercolored backgrounds! While one is drying I'm painting another! I used the same process for this second card - heat embossed the Indian Background Stamp and added some green watercolor over the top. I started with a flat wash of color, but added a few different shades of green to build up color and create depth. I stamped and watercolored the elephant from the Incredible India stamp set and die cut it with the coordinating die set. Instead of die cutting a sentiment I decided to stamp the sentiment from the Incredible India stamp set and create a banner. 



I hope you love these cards! A lot of the new products from the March release are made to fit like a glove with existing products! Remember to hop along and get more inspiration from the other blogs! Erin is giving away three $25 gift cards!
