Emboss It! Mixed Media Card


Good morning :)
As promised I am back today with my DT card for this weeks C4E Recipe challenge.
All the details, entry and inspiration can be found HERE.


I have to admit I don't seem to get on with my heat tools! I have two and I always worry I'm going to overheat the piece and start a fire lol! But for my card this week I dug out the embossing powders and had a go :) 


I love the effect of heat embossing but I am a real wimp over the process lol!
I have added gold embossing powder over a text stamp and some rough gold edging to my card.
I then painted over with Distress ink.



The flower cluster has some watch parts tucked in to it along with die cut leaves, cotton thread, cheesecloth and Prima trim.




That's all from me today I hope you will join us this week :)
Have a fabulous weekend thanks for stopping by

Bokeh Card


Good Morning :)
As promised I am back with my DT project for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge.


My card uses a fabulous technique called BOKEH. It's a photography term which describes the effect you get when areas of the photo are out of focus. You see it a lot when you take photos of lights. 


I used Distress reinkers and a white ink pad to create the Bokeh effect on watercolour paper.


The large sentiment in the center has been heat embossed with matt black embossing powder.


To finish I added a few sequins.
The technique seems to work best with darker colours, I tried a pale pink one which was pretty but the Bokeh effect was not clear.

Over to you now :)
Share your Circle projects with us HERE.
Have a great weekend thanks for stopping by

The Modelling Paste was brushed with a little Perfect Pearls powder to give it some extra shimmer.


To finish I sprinkled some white gesso and silver Maya Gold paint over the whole piece.
