Well I'm a month behind I must try to get up to date but the weather is just so nice.............
So July is nearly over but there is just time to enter the Challenge if you haven't already entered.
So this card is one i made using sheenas embossing folder from her taste of india range. I've done this card twice at demo's and also at a recent workshop and everyone loved the effect. I've used glycerine as my adhesive fort the embossing powder and its so easy. I've tried and tried with versamark and i just cant get the hang of it.
So all you need to do is using a hard brayer is paint glycerine over the roller and then transfer it to one side of your embossing folder, this one is ornate screen. then emboss as usual through your die cutting machine, i used the reverse of some centura pearl card. Then sprinkle with your chosen embsossing powder, I've chosen gold. then heat emboss to set. Once you have done this then choose a couple of distress inks and apply with cut and dry foam. I've used fired brick and seedless preserves. then cut your piece of card down to fit your desired card blank. I've used Kraft card and matted with black card. then finished with some black ribbon and the sentiment is from sheenas Mandala stamp set, stamped in black embossing powder and cut out using tags 1. Then to complete ive added a few drops of liquid pearls in a matching purple colour.
