Now, on Wednesday's Let Leonie Loose this week, we have got a really good price on some of my stamps - so I thought I'd have a little play and share what I've been doing with you. You will be able to see me demo these live.
First, I cut a couple of hearts using my deep heart dies, I love these dies as they allow me to cut out of thicker materials, like mount board - which means we can get our triple thick embossing powders out!!
I coated the first heart with versamark and covered it with triple thick embossing powder. I melted this with my heat gun, and applied another layer of powder whilst the first layer was still molten and hot. Repeat this until you have 3 layers of powder, which will give you a lovely gloss finish.
I then used some of my coloured ultra thick embossing powders. Silver from Crafty Notions, and a lovely blue from Cosmic Shimmer
Emboss a layer of silver first, look how smooth the finish is, it's stunning
While the silver is warm, sprinkle on some of the blue embossing powder, and emboss. I sprinkled on some more silver, until I was happy about the colour
Now, whilst the embossing powder is still warm, stamp into it. I used my Festive Texture background stamp, which I designed so you could use it as a background stamp....but you don't have to use the full stamp - this expands the possibilities.
And, because it's an unmounted stamp, it's really easy to bend, so this allows me to be really specific which bit of the stamp I use - and I love the look of just a little texture, I think it looks really cool
Have a play, it's easy and effective
I hope you can join me on Wednesday, Hochanda. 2-4. Seeya then :) xxx
