One of my crafty resolutions for this year is to practice and get better at heat embossing…so every now and then I keep reminding myself about it…and today I patiently sat down to create this card which not only has heat embossing but also a lot of masking as you can see that quite a few of the images are overlapped…
I started with a watercolour cardstock panel and created a few masks for the flowers that were overlapping on my design layout…I then did my stamping and heat embossed the flower outline images using gold embossing powder…I also embossed a few flowers on vellum paper and coloured them pink and kept them aside to use later…
I then cut this design into two pieces and adhered a pink strip of gold embossed sentiment in the middle…to get this panel to for the card front,I simply ran it through my Cuttlebug using a stitched rectangle die..
Finally I used some Distress inks to watercolour the white areas above and below the embossed flowers…I used mermaid lagoon,peacock feather and cracked pistachio Distress ink shades mixed with a bit of water…once dry,I adhered this panel to the front of a plain white card and adhered the pink vellum flowers as well..
I will be entering this card in the latest Time Out Challenge #86
…the theme of this challenge is celebrations and I thought that a congratulations card would be great for this theme…I’m still finding out the details of the challenges but I think there is a new challenge every two weeks and if you’re interested in taking part,here’s the link to their blog – Time Out Challenges
Thank you so much for visiting today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!
