I've got a fun but simple technique today that uses all over heat embossing with WOW! Changers to create a subtle tone on tone look that works great for any type of card - just change up your stencil, stamp or embossing powder color to fit your theme.
The embossing powders I used today are metallic. These mix fabulously with the changers to get an unusual effect. I'm using Metallic Rose Gold (on the left) and Etched Platinum (on the right, from the Seth Apter Metalz Trio).
I created a video showing how I created each card which you can find here or over on WOW! Embossing's YouTube Channel.
For both cards, I completed coated a panel of WOW! cardstock (trimmed to 4.25" x 5.5") with embossing ink, then heat embossed once. My first card uses Etched Platinum.
For my next card I used Rose Gold and coated a panel of WOW! cardstock as before, this time heat embossing in Rose Gold. I mixed 2 scoops of Rose Gold with 2 scoops of the WOW! Glisten Changer (my favorite - did you know you can buy these separately now!!). I inked up the large heart stamp from the WOW! Hearts & Twine stamp set with embossing ink and then stamped it directly onto the panel. Be careful, the surface is quite slick so the stamp can slip.
I added my Glisten/Rose Gold mix and heated. I repeated this several times along the left side of the. panel with the large and small hearts, and the fireworks-esque stamp, heat embossing as I went, to create the tone on tone look once more, with a little sparkle in it. You can see how the light catches those sparkles in the top of the photo above.
I finished the card the exact same way as the first, using 'Celebrate' from the same Altenew Mega Label Love stamp set.
This is a subtle effect with the Changers, but great for backgrounds, clean and simple heat embossing and particularly more masculine cards. I just love that effect, and I hope you do too!
