Stretch your stamps 2: Dag 1 (2)

I tried my hand at Lisa Spangler’s technique and allthough it did in no way turn out as beautiful and elegant at Lisa’s I enjoyed trying something new and different. I’ve never embossed and then used my iron to remove the embossing again but I can see fun uses for this technique even if I find it hard to perfect. My card took a very funky turn due to the colours of mist I have in my stash.

The embossing was supposed to make sure the mists didn’t seep into the stamped pattern but that wasn’t entirely the case for me. I have an idea that it might be because my embossing powder wasn’t fine enough or didn’t melt completely. Oh well – you live you learn.

Lisa used some large embellishments and I combined two types of sequins and a pearl to create my own large embellishments. I also took Lisa’s tip to place some of them under the patterned paper which I must agree looks great.

Again, this was not a technique I’d previously tried my hands at and thus I’ve learned something new and fun!

    Jeg havde præcist det samme problem med mist’en, da jeg forsøgte dette. Tror nu også mit stempel var for fin-mønstret plus at mit embossing pulver ikke var “extra fine”. Efter at have set dit kort, tror jeg, at jeg vil forsøge endnu engang – med et andet stempel 😉
