Melt -Embossing ~ A New Technique for Me!

And further more…. while I had my embossing powder out for the JAI challenge this week I had a sudden notion to see what would happen if I embossed on the acetate window sheets…

So I stamped with my White Craft stamp-pad, then tipped a healthy amount of white embossing powder on there (oh of course used my embossing buddy first) and then proceeded to emboss um…melt with my Heat Tool!

After I panicked a little – I persevered and love the result:

See how it melted and curled the corners and edges? I repeated this curl on the top edge of my DSP using my metal kebab stick  as a winding tool (this kitchen item I use every time I craft for some reason or another!!!) 

I also really love how the embossing is a little hit and miss and transparent in some places.

I’ve secured my window sheet onto the DSP with brads to avoid yucky adhesive marks.  Doesn’t this flower from Autumn Flair look fab used in repeat like this?

I thought I’d chuck some dry embossing in there too on my Kiwi Kiss Strip.

To do this I’ve used an embossing tool to score lines at various points along the card stock.

My little sentiment (from Picture This Hostess set) is stamped using White Craft on Basic Grey Cardstock and of course punched with a word window.

Stay tuned for more embossing um…melting to come – I don’t think I will put my heat tool away just yet!

Remember if you haven’t already – head over to JAI and check out the fab DT projects on offer for your inspiration this week!
