Today I'm catching up with Less is More
One Layer card
You may use heat or dry embossing.
Today my card is embossed with silver embossing powder, I bleached out the colour so that I could paint with Twinkling H20's and then Diamond glazed.
Stamps Hero Arts, clear poppies and
Andy Skinner text Gothic. Stamped in Brilliance, pearlescent Orchid.
Second card, trying to save you having to comment twice :0)
Embossed with craft concepts folder, Budding Vine that had been inked with Versa colour celadon and then I heat embossed the result with Kaleidoscope clear embossing powder, not sure you can see that.
Then top text (as above) Andy Skinner text in Brilliance peacock ink. SU sentiment. Copics to highlight flowers and for blue strip.
Not too sure I like the way the card is distorted by the embossing but it's 300gsm card, I've had it under a heavy book, nothing more I can do about it.
Okay! Enjoy what's left of the weekend and TTFN Thank you so much for joining me here, you really are most welcome :0)
Notes on bleaching.If you've not done this technique before. Do take care! bleach is not the nicest thing to inhale or get on your clothes or you!
You will achieve differing degrees of success, not all card stock bleaches well, you need to test the card before you start.
Emboss your image. Then with the cheapest, thinnest bleach and using an old paintbrush, carefully paint the bleach inside the design. When you've got the degree of lift that you need let it dry and either leave or paint with the colour of your choice.
Hope that helps if not my email is at the top of the page I'll be happy to help :0)
