Hi there and Happy Thursday! So it’s my time of the month to post over on on Craft Stamper Magazine Blog, every first Thursday I’ll be sharing a card taking an idea from my article that month.
This month I showed a technique using heat embossing, inking and then taking the embossing off to create a matt, flat surface to then stamp onto. In the article it was very subtle but to today the card is very vibrant so you can see it works from a lot of different styles.
*Stamp the paisleys from Wplus9 ‘Paisley Patterns’ in Versa Mark and heat emboss using a clear powder.
*Ink the card base using Distress Ink and a blending tool (Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Spiced Marmalade).
*Using the technique shown in the July 2012 Issue ‘Emboss On, Emboss Off’ remove the clear embossing powder from your project.
*Stamp the sentiment from Winnie & Walter ‘The Big, The Bold and You’ and cover with glossy accents.
By using this technique you can add lots of inked layers and still be able to stamp on a flat surface.
If you have created something that was inspired by my article I would totally love to see it! Leave a link to your project in the comments section. I’ll pop on over and take a look.
Hugs, Lydia xxx
