MM8: Mask-erade Day 5

Hello! Welcome to a Mask-erade version of Monday Musings! Today, I'd like to share a card that was inspired by one of the heat embossing techniques from Saturday's lesson. 

There is a pretty, delicate white flower on the right.
Not sure how well the photo shows it.

The following are my steps, as well as the materials used.
  • Step 1: I inked a Hampton Arts image in versamark on Canson watercolor paper and heat embossed it with Stampin' Up! white embossing powder.
  • Step 2: I misted the paper with water using a Ranger mini mister. Then, I applied pickled raspberry and peacock feather Distress Inks using a Ranger water brush.
  • Step 3: Since I was planning on using a black sentiment and mount the card on black Stampin' Up! core paper, I decided to add a little black throughout the card front. So, I spattered a little Distress Ink black soot using an old toothbrush.

  • Step 4: So, Debby said that the embossing powder could be removed from the card front by ironing the card between two sheets of paper. I was skeptical, but to the basement I went. (I was skeptical, hubby was shocked. He said, "I wondered what you were ironing.") Imagine my surprise when the ironing really did work!

  • Final Steps: I mounted the card front on the black cardstock, stamped "missing" and "you" from Winnie & Walter's Big, Bold, Friend stamp set, and added a few stash sequins.
Parting Thoughts
This is actually my third post of the day. Think the only other time that's happened is during a VCMP.  :)
