Welcome back to another Feature Friday Session! I hope that among all your weekend plans that you find at least a little time to sneak away and make something crafty. Lately I haven’t had a whole lot of time to craft, so I’ve been focusing a lot on gift tags, and bookmarks. This seems to satisfy my “need” to so something crafty, and slightly streamlines my process. Also, I’ll be putting these tags to good work in the form of gift wrapping and creative gift giving.
Today’s Feature Friday video focuses on Heat Embossing and Watercoloring. I’ve put my new Twinkling H2O’s to work, and already, I’m excited to buy a few more! Heat embossing is also a fabulous feature when you want just a little more definition in your image, or even in your sentiment treatment. I’ve used it to waterproof my image so that I could paint, and than again to give a little more weight to my sentiment. You’ll see how I used the technique both ways in today’s video.
For today’s project I’ve used Inspired by Flowers (set three) the sentiment from Inspired by Flowers (set two) as well as the Solid Bracket Border Die-namics and overstamped the image with the text block included in First Class Friend. Patterned paper is from Echo Park: Times and Seasons.
I hope this video is helpful to anyone that hasn’t tried heat embossing before, or if you’ve picked up either Twinkling H2O’s and not used them!
