Let the countdown begin!
Hi it’s Louise with my last couple of posts for this year. Can you believe we’re into December already? Where has the year gone? Only 24 more sleeps until Christmas!
After removing the paper mask I covered the stamped area with embossing powder, tipping the excess back into the pot.
Once the powder had been heated with a heat gun, the detail of the stamped image could be seen clearly. I repeated this process with other colours and with a smaller square mask on the kraft base of my LO.
The metallic powders are just gorgeous and photos don’t really do them justice. They are also really fine, so are perfect to use with intricate stamps without losing too much detail.
As well as stamping directly on to the LO through the circular mask, I also stamped onto spare card and used a circle punch so that I could layer up the embossed circles.
I often add journalling onto a luggage tag, but look how fab they are when embellished with a strip of mix tape.
There is so much potential with this technique. I already have ideas buzzing around my head about using a Father Christmas stamp peeping through an aperture on a festive LO.
I hope this post inspires you to get embossing and masking. If you do have a go, please leave a link to your work so I can come and leave a comment for you.
All of the products I used on these LOs can be viewed below. Just click on the image to be taken to the shop. Stash shopping made simple.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a couple more LOs using the same Times & Seasons range.
Bye for now
