Hello friends! It is Natasha here and I am excited to be back up on the blog today! Today I wanted to share a simple way to heat emboss a dry embossed background, as well as heat embossing on ephemera. So let's get started!
I started today's card by creating a colorful background on a dry embossed watercolor cardstock panel. I applied Lindy's Magicals to my panel to add color and texture to my background. I used 3 different colors. Once the panel was dry, I trimmed the panel down using my paper trimmer. Next I used a mini brayer to apply embossing ink to my panel. I added the ink in various sections, then applied embossing powder. I used 2 different colors, I used: Mud Pie and Midnight. I heat set one color at a time.
Next I distressed the edges of my panel with my distress tool and then applied ink to the edges to add more of a rustic feel. I then adhered the panel to an A2 card base. Next I started to work with my floral die cut and the ephemera. I distressed the ephemera in the same way as I shared above (card panel). I then added embossing ink and Karin's Dream embossing powder to my butterfly.
To complete my card I adhered the floral die cut and ephemera with liquid glue and foam tape. I had a lot of fun today! I hope you enjoyed today's card I am excited to see how you use your embossing folders with powders!
Have a great day! Crafty Hugs!
