Gold Embossing on Hero Arts Layering Stamps


NOTICE: It looks like we’re having a bit of trouble with our InLinkz Link-up on our blog. It seems to have a mind of its own and disappeared from the side-bar. However, it found a home on the first day of March here. The DT are trying to put it back where it came from, but until you see it in the usual place on the top right side, you’ll be able to enter here.

Hi Friends! Kristina here with some more inspiration for our Embossing Challenge this month!!
I’m on a gold embossing kick! I love the look of gold embossing images water colored, and thought I’d mix it up a bit and use gold embossing on some color layering stamps!Hero Arts Color Layering For You Flowers
For the images I wanted a soft watercolor type look, without water coloring.
So I pulled out my distress inks, and gave each 2 spritzes of water before stamping.
It really softened the colors, be retained the look of a stamped image.

For the outline layer on each stamp, I used versamark ink and heat embossed with gold powder.
To finish I added a gold glitter strip under some vellum, which I gold embossed my sentiment onto.

Here’s a close up
