In this post i will show you how to create faux water droplets on your cards. Of course you could use store bought drops but those are all the same size and to be honest,they do not look as real as these drops i hope show on this picture.
All you need is a finished card, UTEE, a heat tool and embossing ink.
Take your finished card and lightly dab your embossing pad across the card. Do not try and cover the entire card with a thick layer,just lightly dab,not pressing too hard.
Now cover your card with UTEE. It needs to be Ultra Thick embossing powder,regular embossing powder does not have the same result.
Use your heat tool to melt the UTEE. Do not overheat the UTEE! Just melt it a bit and stop as soon as you see droplets form! If you overheat, you will create a solid layer of UTEE. ( which can also be a cool effect but it is not what we are after for now)
Now you should have this effect. Cool faux water drops to give that watery feel to your mermaid cards!
