Heat Embossed Sunflower
Hi everyone. Another card made with my new sunflower stencil. I'm having lots of fun playing. :) Check out my two earlier cards using this stencil HERE and HERE.
This time I started with a watercolour spray background I had in my stash. I first used my anti-static bag to go over the front panel of my card. Then I placed the stencil over top, and pressed with my Versamark pad. Clear embossing powder was poured over top, and the image was heated until the embossing powder melted.
Love how it gives just a little more colour to the image. Very subtle, but pretty. I couldn't capture the shine from the embossing powder on my whole card photo above, so I'm sharing a pic below that shows some of the shine.
Tomorrow I'm going to move on from my new stencil for a little while. I'll be sharing something completely different. Make sure to come back and check out my latest video tutorial. See you then!
