Embossing with Uncoloured Images
Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing another Heat Embossed card as a reminder that the CAS Mix Up May Challenge - Heat Embossing is closing in a few days.
The panel above started with randomly heat embossing some script background (I do love this background!). :) Colour was then added over top of the embossing using the acetate smooshing technique with Distress Inks (Twisted Citron and Broken China). Love the subtle colours paired with the embossed script.
I also heat embossed a few butterflies and then fussy cut them out. I didn't colour them this time, instead leaving just the embossed liquid platinum as the colour. This is all because of my friend Maria and her post she did about the "illustrated" style and a new trend of having the focal images uncoloured. Not my usual, but I gave this a try and have to say that I really like how this turned out. :) Thanks Maria!
It's so easy to make a CAS Mix Up card ... my card has stamping, heat embossing, and acetate smooshing. Still lots of open space, which is the CAS (clean and simple) part of the challenge.
I hope you'll come play along with our May challenge at CAS Mix Up. There's still a few days left to play along The challenge closes end of day May 24th (PDT).
Thanks for stopping by!
