Distress Ink Background Card

Image
The stamp in this card was one of my bargain finds, a few weeks ago and I love the vibrant flowers in the cart. It reminded me of marigolds which got my little mind working and reminded me of the dried marigold distress ink I have in my stash.
I wanted to create a background that complimented the flower colours but which did not deter your view point from the stamped image as I wanted that to remain the focal point.

Heat Embossing

So I spent a long time admiring others heat embossing and amazed at the results but too afraid of failure to allow myself myself to try it. I just avoided it like the plague.
But I finally bit the bullet and purchased a starter kit, this included a number of coloured embossing powders, a heat tool and an embossing ink pad. Armed with my new purchases I trailed you tube looking for an easy to follow to guide and after many false starts I now LOVE heat embossing.

In this tutorial I will show you just how easy it actually is.
