Hi scrappers! Once again it's my turn to post at She's A Sassy Lady. I hope you enjoy this fun technique I'm sharing with you. I've seen similar ideas around the blogosphere and wanted to give it a try.
I started by stamping a background stamp with Versamark. Then I slowly started sprinkling my embossing powder in alternating colors. Unfortunately, you will "waste" some powder since all the colors will mix together, but I think it's worth it.
And after all my colors are added. Apparently I missed a spot, bummer. This picture is before I set the powder with my heat gun.
I also decided to try it on black card stock and I love how it turned out.
Next I placed my heat embossed pattern on my cutting mat, as you can see I chose to use the black for this card.
Next up, cutting. Pretty simple, right?! I chose my sentiment from the Silhouette online store and lined it up in my window so it cut directly on my paper. If you look close you'll see I accidentally cut off part of my 'y', thank goodness I had a big enough area I could cut it again.
Then I simply put my card together. I used some twine and a border punch to complete my card design. I have to admit, it feels like something is missing...but in any case, it's a finished card...for now at least. Lol.
