I love the SU colour Highland Heather - its just so delicate and pretty. I thought it would be nice to do some white heat embossing and then colour my flowers with my Highland Heather Blends. The Blends really do go on so smoothly and it takes very little effort to achieve beautifully coloured flowers like these.
I used the masking technique, stamping out the flower three times onto three Post It Notes which had low tack adhesive over the whole of the reverse side. These were each then cut out, providing me with a set of masks. Then I set about stamping in Versamark and heat embossing each flower with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. I covered the embossed flowers with the masks and built up a seemless mass of flowers covering one side of my card layer.
If you are unsure how masking works, then this quick but really useful video from Papercraft and Scrapbook Magazine explains it perfectly:-
The flower is from the Botanical Bliss stamp set. The sentiment is from Dandelion Wishes. See Product List below.
Hope you like it and maybe feel inspired to have a go at this technique. I found it very absorbing.
Thanks for looking and bye for now.
