This card used a combination of 2 heat embossing videos.
I had watched this video from Stamp TV, tried it.
Didn't work well for me.
I'll share the blooper later.
I thought maybe doing this technique over colored stamping would work better for me.
So I put this Dreamy stamp on MISTI, inked with markers,
cleaned the stamp, and inked with VersaMark.
Ran over to the embossing table and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I loved the Layered Emboss Resist technique from Altenew.
You may remember that I used this technique on these cards.
So I sponged over the whole piece with some Vintage Photo Distress ink.
Then I stamped the flourish a few times on the card using the VersaMark ink
and clear embossed that.
I sponged over it all with Brushed Corduroy.
After wiping the excess ink off the embossed pieces, I stamped some more
flourishes and this time embossed with white.
The sentiment was heat embossed with white on a piece that was cut off the final piece.
I put a narrow mat of gold foil behind the design to give it some elegance.
I love the shine the embossing adds.

Want to see the bloopers and blunders?
|Maybe some more black ink sponged on? Or lighter on the watercolor.|
|Definitely need to wait awhile between sponging and embossing!|
