Heat Embossing at MMM

At Make My Monday for the next week are challenging you to create a project using the technique Heat Embossing, now this could be one of  several heat embossing techniques, direct heat embossing, using UTEE, (ultra thick embossing enamel) or the resist technique, which being honest, as techniques go, it is top of my list of techniques. You never fail to get a good result with the Resist Technique. I started by preparing the main body of my card, then cut the image sheet. I rubbed all over with an anti-static bag. I stamped using Versamark,  sprinkled a  white Stampendous detailed embossing powder over the Versamark, removed the excess powder, then using my heat tool melted the powder. Put aside to cool. When cooled, I rubbed across the lower third with Worn Lipstick, then across the centre third with Wild Honey, and along the top third with Mustard Seed, all TH Distress inks. I blended all three, then with a soft piece of tissue I rubbed over the stamped area to remove any wayward ink. It buffs up great, lovely and clean. The stamp is from Little Claire, is called Cherish, Hope and Dream. It is such a versatile stamp. I look forward to visiting your blogs to see how you have created your project using Heat Embossing - have fun and stay safe.
From our recent DT call I am so pleased to welcome to the Deezine Team Laura, Rosie and Jan (JayBe). Please do visit their blogs I am sure we have lots of exciting projects to look forward to.
