The Silhouette sketch + heat embossing technique is super versatile. You can use it with colored embossing powder to create everything from metallic, heat embossed sentiments to fun backgrounds using colored embossing powders.
I love using this technique to make emboss resist backgrounds for watercoloring, and in the video below I’ll show you how to make this fall-inspired card using a sketch file and Prima Marketing Decadent Pies Watercolors, which include a range of muted colors that are perfect for fall.
I finished the card by using two print and cut elements from the Happy Fall Digital Journaling + Elements set, and I share a handy tip about covering printer mistakes, too!
Check out the step-by-step tutorial (including how to set up the file to sketch & cut in Silhouette Studio) in the video below:
