It's Saturday and that's Just Us Girls Challenge Day
I had a fun and messy afternoon after seeing a
'new to me' technique on YouTube.
It's Hot Glue Embossing and thought it would be
something different for our Word Week
hosted by Carol Mc choosing 'Sparkle'
It does look just like a big mess that went wrong but -
I made quite a few. Some turned out,
others hmm! Just had to pick which one I liked
and go from there.
This was soooooooooo hard to photograph
to show the 'sparkle' (I tried)
I think the sparkly embossing powder
may have been a little too fine.
Background is smooched Magical's.
Dribbled hot glue and thought I would try and add foil
which worked out nicely then I smothered it with
very fine sparkly embossing powder.
Added a small frame behind it with the same paper
as my metallic base only a lighter weight.
After much searching I finally found a sentiment
that fitted the challenge perfectly -
Tim's Small Talk.
Decided to show another since I had several
sitting on my desk.
This is a little different - not sparkly as such
It was heat embossed in copper and added
Stampendous embossing enamel which highlighted
the sheen from the Magical's background.
Distressed the edges, added a sentiment,
framed in metallic paper and finished with
the bright card base.
What a fabulous challenge. Hope to see
lots of sparkle in all forms in the Gallery.
