I’ve been experimenting with heat embossing over this weekend and decided to try embossing handwritten sentiment. I didn’t want it to be crisp, I wanted to make a splash.

The cue word at CASology this week is ‘Embrace’ and a theme at HLS CAS Challenge this month is ‘Metal / Faux Metal’, so this idea seemed to be a perfect fit and I gave it a go.

I’ve written my sentiment with clear embossing pen, covered it with gold powder and splattered some more powder with a paintbrush dipped in Versamark ink. Then I heated my panel with heat gun from beneath and once again in a regular way.

    I like this effect very much. I often have odd speckled with embossing powder when I don’t want them so this would be a good way to make a feature out of it instead of a mistake. Thanks!

      You are very welcome! Sometimes I’m hesitant about posting my cards. This is one of them, as it can look as an artful project to one person and as a mistake to another one. But if I made it, why don’t publish it. I’m overcoming my fear of making mistakes this way. Anyway I like experimenting and like how it turned out and I’m happy that you like it!
