Happy Valentine's Day


Hello! I tried a new fun technique today! The technique challenge today over on SCS was Heat Embossing on Dry Embossing. I ran my Versamark pad over the raised Dry Embossing and then added my clear Embossing Powder. I couldn't get a good picture of it but the raised embossing is really shiny. Next time I might get brave and try colored embossing powder!! I didn't color my whole image I wanted my flowers to stand out. I thought the heart shaped flower petals would make a perfect Valentine's card for a friend! I added some pearls to the flower centers. List of supplies and challenges used is below. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! I think we might be having some nasty weather headed our way.

I will have to try that technique, Janice. That is a very pretty card, and although it is hard to see the wet look on the raised areas I can picture it in my mind and it must look amazing in person!
