I took the Progress Cards class and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought I would try some different techniques with embossing. I used an embossing folder and some crackle paste.
I used a piece of watercolor paper and lightly misted both sides with water. I put it in the 3-D Texture Fades Foliage embossing folder and ran through my die cutter. When it was dry I lightly ran the ink pads of Tattered Rose and Antique Linen over the embossed leaves. I let dry and redid the process. I found the key was to very lightly run the ink pads over the embossed panel. I blended around the outside some tea die distress oxide to frame it.
I used the Greenwood Flower Altenew Layer stencil and stamped the first layer. On the 2nd layer of the stencil, I used some crackle paste. I then sprinkled some Kitsch Flamingo embossing glaze on the paste and waited for it to dry. After drying, using a heat gun, heated and embossed the glaze. I then lightly misted with some perfect pearls in some water.
I assembled the flower on some specialty papers and adhered to a card. Lastly, I added the sentiment.
Hope you enjoy!
