I played around with the Encrusted Jewel technique a few months back and had so much fun with it. So easy to do if you have a hot plate ... but you can also use your heat tool. For my butterfly, I used some very old embossing powders that I've had since I first started making cards many years ago. They are so old and they don't work well on cards (I've tried), but they are perfect layered with each other. I have green glitter and blue glitter, which I sprinkled on top of my die-cut butterfly very liberally. Once they started to melt, I threw in a few pinches of Shaved Ice. This products is pearl, iridescent flakes, but if they are heated they turn into deep green and blue iridescent flakes that melt. So pretty. I've had the Shaved Ice for at least 10 years and don't think I've used it before. :)
For my card, I created a leaf background stencil from a Penny Black die and used it to add embossing paste to the background. Placed a card front over top that was cut with a peek-a-boo window, stamped with a simple silver sentiment. The butterfly is popped up on top.
Here's a close-up ...
Layer up embossing powder any way you want, create a CAS card that includes stamping and one other mixed media element and then join us in the gallery. We'd love to see you there.
