I thought I'd share these cards with you today, where I have used the Lustre Embossing Powders from my latest Precious Metals Collection with Cosmic Shimmer.
I did post photos of these cards on my Facebook page, but I'm aware that not everyone 'does' Facebook, so I'm sharing here and, to be honest, I love these cards too ha ha
Double Embossing is one of my favourite techniques, it's a fabulous way to take a die cut sentiment (as I have), shape, flower, leaf or whatever and make it into something really special, they almost look like metal (or enamel, depending on which colour powder you use), what a great way to use all those scraps of card we have, but can't bear to throw away (you know what I mean!)
If you watch me on HOCHANDA, you will most likely have seen me demo this technique as I always try to get it in one or two of my shows for those who haven't seen it before..
In case you haven't seen me do this,.. it's the easiest thing in the world!
Just take your die cut, push it (face down) into your perfect medium pad (it's the best!) then sprinkle with your chosen embossing powder, heat up and repeat,.. twice is usually enough, but you can do three layers if you wish... (remember, all my embossing powders are lustre ones, so you get that gorgeous pearly sheen from them!)
I also used the Mica Powders in the respective colours to paint the centre of the orange blossom flowers (just use a water brush)
Here's what I used on all these cards (with links to the products on my www in case you 'need' to treat yourself,.. and why wouldn't you ha ha)
