You're Sweet!

Hey... just me again with another late card!  I can't seem to get caught up!  I'm workin' workin' workin' on it though...

My card today is for Fairy Fun Fridays.  The challenge this week is to use wet (heat) embossing.  How fun!!!  Can you guess where the embossing is???

This is the adorable Gilly's Bike digi by the very talented Roberta at Prairie Fairy Designs : ).  She's colored with copics and enhanced with Glamour Dust Ultrafine Glitter Paint (bling that doesn't run with digis!).

I love using Diamond Glaze for lenses on glasses :)  Unlike real glasses, the shine looks great!  The image is die cut with oval and scalloped oval nesties.  The sweet rhinestones can be found HERE.

Peeking from behind the nesties is a die cut using Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags Two.  I cut it in half so it would fit on either side of the oval and ran my ribbon through!  I've also given it two coats of bling with Ice Crystal Glamour Dust Ultrafine Glitter paint.  Click on the photo to enlarge if you can't see the sparkle!

And now the wet (heat) embossing...  The obvious one is the sentiment.  I stamped 'You're Sweet!' with black pigment ink and covered the area with clear embossing powder.  After tapping off the excess powder, I used my heat tool to emboss.

Handmade DP!!!
The second, less obvious place I've used wet (heat) embossing is the background paper (white bicycles!)  To achieve this look, I stamped the image randomly over my white card stock using VersaMark Dazzle Frost Shimmer Watermark Ink Pad, covering half the paper at a time with clear embossing powder and tapping off the excess and finally, heating the images to emboss!

At this point, the paper and bicycles are still white... so to make the bicycles stand out, I chose to use Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink which I sponged over the entire sheet of paper.  To make sure that no ink remained on the bicycles, I took a paper towel and gently wiped over the surface.  Handmade dp... Done!

I hope that I've encouraged you to get out your embossing powder and heat it up with us at Fairy Fun Fridays : )
