Flourished Blessings with Clear Embossing Technique
Here are two cards that I made using a clear embossing technique over Splendor paper. First I stamped the leaf image (D1379 Flourished Blessings) onto the patterned paper with Versamark Ink. Next I applied CTMH Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with our craft heater. After that I used a sponge dauber with either Chocolate stamp pad or Topiary stamp pad to rub ink into the grooves of the stamped image and around the stamped image to provide contrast from the original paper print which shows in the leaf image. The first card uses Colonial White as the base with Goldrush and Pansy Purple cardstock and Chocolate ink. The second card uses Colonial White as the base with Garden Green and Autumn Terracotta cardstock and Topiary Ink. Close To My Heart has such beautiful patterned papers that this technique can be used with--let your imagination run free with this easy yet stunning technique!
