Hi Everyone, I hope you are enjoying your Easter Bank Holiday Weekend?? Not much of a break for us here at Pinnacles as we have been open all over the weekend, no rest for the wicked I guess..I've returned to my first love for Today's project.. Stamping! or to be more specific, Heat Embossing!! I can't remember the last time I did any but picking up the Heat gun and watching the Embossing Powder do it's stuff has reignited my passion for this technique. I still remember the first time I saw "the magic" happen when the Embossing Powder turned from a dull Grey to a shiny Silver.. How did it do that? I don't care, I just know I love the effect.I stamped out an image on Black & White card stock using Versa Mark Clear Ink and poured Silver Embossing Powder over the images and heat set them.I cut out alternate layers from both of the coloured card stockand then mounted them on top of each other with foam pads.I then mounted the whole Medallion image onto a Black & White Matt set which I had layered disproportionately, that's a log word for me! I usually Matt and layer proportionately I.E each layer the same measurement up from the last layer, but I am finding matting and layering disproportionately gives a really nice effect and is great for Matt and layering your photo's for Scrapbookig too..
So, there you have it, very simple but also very effective..
Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.
