Fun Technique

Followed my recipe from the previous post and got this result. Very happy with my new discovered technique (I am sure someone in the world had done this before, I just never saw it). Use stencil butter in red and blue smeared on acetate sheet with some water to cause them to move. Press white text vellum into color. Next swipe de-emboss side of folder with clear ink and place dried colored side of paper on that then run through die cut machine. Heat set gold embossing powder then swipe black ink pad cross surface till happy with saturation. Trim to fit card and mount. I did place the ef under the acetate before adding stencil butter to encourage color on the centers of the flowers. This goes together very quickly and is on the messy side but easy clean up.

This is the second pull on the acetate sheet. I did re-ink the clear ink on the ef, embossed the piece and heat set the gold. The blue got lost when adding the black but I do like the results. There are two more pulls that I have yet to emboss and smear. I might try a color ink pad just to see how I like that. Maybe platinum embossing powder with a dark blue ink?

Thanks for sharing your time with me, now I am sharing this with:
