Hi friends! This card was so fun to make! I got to play with supplies I already had to create fun and textural effects of embossed copper and terracotta pots.
The techniques are easy and versatile. Feel free to substitute gelatos for paints, watercolor crayons or water-soluble oil pastels. Try what you have before buying new!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and try out the techniques for yourself. Try changing the colors to black, grey and silver to make a faux pewter background or stoneware pot. Changing the colors can give you a brand new effect and it is so fun to experiment! We buy the supplies to use them, not admire them pristine on a shelf right? Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
