Technique Blog Hop ~ Heat it Up

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are exploring techniques that use Heat. I think about Heat embossing. This technique is a great way to add texture and can help when using markers or watercolors to keep the colors from bleeding over. If you are coming from MICHELLE LONCAR’s Blog, you are on the right track! If you get lost you can find a full list of participants HERE.

I decided to play with Fairy Tale Magic Stamp set. I started with Daisy White cardstock that I used the large Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts to make the stitched base. I used a stencil that I had created this past fall for a halloween card you can see the stencil HERE, it is basically a circle and a rectangle negative. I started by using White Pigment Ink and then Heat Embossed with White Embossing Powder on the sparkles and sentiments. I then held the circle stencil in place and sponged Pixie & Thistle ink. I then used the rectangle negative and sponged Canary Ink. I then stamped the fairy with Black Pigment Ink on velum and then used Clear Embossing powder.

To color the fairy I used Triblend Markers for the hair and skin, by coloring the back of the fair. I then used the shimmer brushes to color the rest. I used Julep, Peach and Clear. I also splattered the Clear Shimmer brush on the base. I am not sure if you can really appreciate it in this photo.
