We have been Heatin' It Up all summer long here on my blog and over at StampNation. We've been exploring tons of different ways to use Heat Embossing techniques on your projects, I can't believe there are so many ways! The Heat It Up event officially “ended” last week, but I just can't stop!
Let's take Heat Embossing – in gold glitter YUM!!!- and pair it with watercoloring with Brusho. Brusho powder is a bit like magic and you get something different every time.
Sparkle Embossing and Brusho Watercoloring
How you use Brusho is completely up to you! I could have let it dry right after sprinkling the powder, or I could have left the background darker, or I could have added more color. I had fun and I really like the resulting look.
I cut the technique piece down about 1/2 – 3/4 of an inch, mounted it on black cardstock and added mounting tape so the layer would pop up.
To the card base, I added a strip of glitter paper for some extra sparkly awesomeness!
The sentiment finished it off and I'm ready to make someone's day!
In the video, I mentioned another video where I swatched the colors, here is the link:
You can tell in the video that I am not a “trained fine artist” since I didn't know how to pronounce some of the color names, lol!
Just look at that sparkle!
That Facetime call that so rudely interrupted my stamping? Yeah, it was my dear, sweet friend, Laurel Beard.
She DID have something important to tell me! Kristie Goulet was visiting her!
I don't have a ton of crafty friends that I see on a regular basis…so I know how amazing it is to get together in person and I'm so glad they included me from afar. Look at those sweet faces! MWAH! Love you girls!!!!!
Hope you're inspired today! Have a fabulous one.
