A blog Named Hero – Embossing Challenge!

Hey folks,
Sharing with you this month’s first challenge at A Blog Named Hero.
It is all about embossing – dry or heat. it is up to you.
Here is my take on the challenge.
Hello friend card3
I have used Hero Arts Basic Grey stamp set called Good day to make my card.

I simply stamped the flower images using Versafine Black ink then clear heat embossed them. Then sponged some Ripe Persimmon distress ink to bring the heat embossed images to the front. I also did the same process on a scrap piece of white cardstock, then cut out the flowers by hand. I then die cut a frame using MFT die and vellum cardstock.  I adhered the frame on the card front using foam adhesives and then the cut out flowers using foam as well. I made sure the foam adhering the vellum frame is behind the cut flowers so they don’t show.

Sentiment is also from the same stamp set also heat embossed. I mixed some glitter to my clear embossing powder so there is some glitter on the embossed images.
Finally I have used Pretty Pink Posh’s Cranberry 4mm and 6mm sequins.
Come and play along the challenge with me at A Blog Named Hero.
