Spellbinder’s BetterPress Plate of the Month for August

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

Hello everyone! Rose Bouquet, Spellbinder's BetterPress Plate of the Month, is gorgeous! The BetterPress System produces a crisp, letterpressed image! So amazing! I have faux water coloured this beauty with real brush, water based pens for an easy water colour look.

The August "New Subscriber" registration window will be available August 6 - 27th while supplies last. 

  • Rose Bouquet was letterpressed using BetterPress Letterpress System with black ink on a panel of Porcelain BetterPress A2 Cotton Card Panels. For details on how to use this easy system, check out my video, Introduction To Spellbinder's BetterPress System.

  • A combination of Zig Real Brush Markers and Arteza Real Brush Pens were used to colour this floral design. My focus was getting the right colours so I pulled these water based pens from both sets.

  • Working petal by petal and leaf by leaf, the area was wetted with a water colour brush. The colour was added to the base of the petals and leaves with the markers. The colour was pulled up with the paint brush to create a gradient. An easy and relaxing technique for that water colour look!

  • The design was fussy cut.

  • Ivory card stock 4" by 5 1/4" was embossed with Hydrangea Blooms Embossing Folder and adhered to a gold matted, A2 sized card base.

  • The sentiment from Everyday Sentiments was die cut from both Mirror Gold card stock and black foam. The sentiment was stacked.

  • Rose Bouquet was adhered to the card with foam squares.

  • After the sentiment was adhered, the card was embellished with gold foil half pearls.
