Video : Hero Arts - Heat Embossing and Ink Smooshing Technique

Hello everyone! I'm super happy to be a part of A Blog Named Hero Facebook Inspiration Design Team. Weekly once, I'll be showcasing a card and sometimes video too, using Hero Arts products. You can check our posts here, kindly like the page and share it with your friends.. :)

I made card with Hero Arts Small open flower stamp and Everyday Sayings Stamp set. First, I heat embossed the flower with Gold Embossing Powder from Ranger and then heat embossed the next two flowers with White Embossing powder from Zing. Then I took an acetate, rubbed some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, spritz some water and then went over on to the heat embossed images. And this is called Ink Smooshing Technique. I love how the embossed part resists the water color.. :)

Finally gold embossed the sentiment on vellum, adhered a quilling strip on to the main card base and fixed up everything. I have made a card processing video, if you like the video please give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends and also don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
