I still do!

Hi there and welcome to the WOW! Embossing Powder Blog.
Here is Birgit sharing a layout today. My husband and I are together for 26 years and in march we celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. 

Let me show you how I created this page. First I sprayed glimmer mist at the top of the paper and dragged the paint down the page using a bank card. I stamped the heart with Versamark and embossed it with WOW! Primary Ebony.

Then I stamped the heart a second time on scrap paper and cut out the inner part with a craft knife. Now I could use it as a mask laying it on top of the embossed heart.

I put a piece of Punchanella on top of the mask and filled the dots with Versamark using a piece of blending foam.

Then I took away the punchanella and the mask and embossed the dots with Suzy West Honey.

After that I put the mask back on top and sprayed the heart with glimmer mist. The embossed parts work as a resist. If I would have put a piece of kitchen paper on top after spraying the dots would have been totally clean. But I like how some of the glimmer mist pools in the lower parts of the embossed texture and wanted to keep it that way so I let it dry by air to get this specific look.

To create the black letters on the tag I traced them with an embossing pen and then embossed them with WOW! Primary Ebony. 

To add the blue color on the edges of the heart I used a brush and glimmer mist.

Finally I placed a piece of torn scrap paper just below the top of the page and stamped along the top using the Vintage Wallpaper stamp set with Versamark and then embossed with WOW! Primary Ebony again.
The little stars were made using Punchanella and Stazon ink.

I hope you liked my little tutorial and found some inspiration to use WOW! on your own layouts!
Wishing you a wonderful and creative week ahead!
