Bundled Up Trio with Heather

Hello everyone... Heather here once more and today I'm using the beautiful new Catherine Pooler trio Bundled Up . I've used one of the new Visible Image stamps for this make, Total Chaos, as it's big and 'in your face' and the colours of the Bundled Up trio were perfect for the watery effect I wanted. This gorgeous sparkly trio, has some quite large glittery flakes in it so give it a bit of a shake before using. I stamped the large flower head 3 times and one full flower onto watercolour card using the Peppermint Scrub embossing powder.  Make sure you heat from underneath to start with so the larger flakes don't fly away and once they've begun to melt, you can transfer the heat to the top of the image.   Once heat set, you can add your colour; I chose to use pinks and oranges as I love the colour combination with cool blues and greens. Trim the different layers of the flower and adhere together using foam tape.   Heat emboss the two smaller flower

I started by using the Mixed Media Brush to apply embossing liquid through a stencil on my unprimed journal page. You can make it as thick or thin as you prefer using the brush, however, through a stencil, the thicker it is the less crisp your pattern will be. I used the stencil in 3 places across my page and then I sprinkled Blue Moon embossing powder over the top, tapped off the excess and heat embossed with my Wow! Dual Embossing tool. Once the powder set, I added Dina Wakley Media Gloss Sprays to create my background. The embossing texture acted like a resist to the paint. I continued to add paint to the background as well as some stamping until I was pretty happy. One thing I thought would be fun was to use embossing powders on a chipboard focal piece.
