Good Morning Stampers!
Here’s a fun, inky project for you today!
Copper embossing powder meets the Fluttering embossing folder…
and Copper Takes Flight!
Most of you know I’m obsessed with butterflies and I have to curb my
enthusiasm now and then in order to share other content…well, today
is not that day!
Today’s card puts me right back in the barrel…it has butterflies and ink…
not to mention a distressed look to it, a triple whammy for this stamper!
For this look…get out your Big Shot and dry emboss your card stock with
your embossing folder (Fluttering, item#139304), then use a VersaMark Pad
to ink up those butterflies…remember, we’re not looking for perfection here!
Lightly add ink to the raised images in some places and press a little
harder in others, that gives a more random appearance, and you don’t
want solid coverage when aiming for a distressed look. Some ink may
adhere down in between the butterflies where you have pressed down on
the ink pad…that’s okay…you can fix that in the next step if you want to!
Apply the copper embossing powder (item#141636) and “flick” the card
stock to remove any excess. Before heat embossing it, check out how much
coverage you have on those butterflies! Here’s where you can help create
the distressed look. If you think there is too much powder on the wings or
down in between, scrape some off (I use a dental instrument) to get the
look you’re after.
Now…use the Heat Tool and watch the magic happen…
this is where Copper Takes Flight!
Okay…who else out there is a real weirdo and likes to
watch the embossing powder melt?
I never get tired of it…gets me every time!
