As are many people, I am taking the latest Online Card Class - Clean and Simple 4 - Techniques made simple. I will be using the techniques to further my stash of Valentine cards.
Today's lesson was about embossing, multi color embossing, shadow embossing, and creating a tile look with die embossing. I decided to try the multi color embossing.
Once that was set, the heart mask was removed and I placed the negative around the unembossed area. I added some deep pinky red embossing powder, and heat set that as well. Because the pattern was a bit more open that I would have preferred, I added some pigment ink to the interior of the heart to make the shape more vivid.
A vellum strip with a silver embossed sentiment was wrapped around the panel, which was then adhered to a card base. Two thin strips of glitter paper were added as frames and the card is finished. Is it still clean and simple? I have no idea...but I do love this card.
Thanks for stopping by!
