New heat embossing technique

This afternoon as it was raining here I went to play in my craft room :D  Yesterday I was off... so I did all the chores and household stuff and got to really play today!  I've made 4 cards so far.  2 for futur DT work and 2 that I have shown you.  This is the 2nd post of today!!!!  Pretty good no?!?

So while I was doing my commenting for the Dutch Dare Challenge (by the way there's still time to join up!!!) I came across this wonderful post : Shell shearer.  She had made a totally awesome card!  And she gave the link to the site where she learned it : Mynnettes technique tuesday.  You should go and check it out... after you have checked out my card of course :D

I just had a wonderful digi to use from Create with TLC called Daisies Vintage Digitized, it's part of this set.

I used to make this some paper from Little yellow bicycle - count your blessing.  I cut out the corner with my CM corner punch.  I added some Robin's Nest Dew Drops.  The technique was a bit messy but lots of fun to do.  I used Walnut and Vintage photo distress inks to brown this.

I colored this digi with my copics.  Doesn't  it look good?!?  Really happy with the results.


And here's the look of the sentiment:


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Mynnettes technique tuesday - try out that technique
  2. Craft your passion challenges - Floral Images
  3. Tuesday alchemy - Anything goes
  4. Cas-ual Fridays - Embossing wet or dry (used the wet with this technique)
So that's it for me :D  I'll be preparing my blog posts tonight.  Hope you have liked my card and will be inspired as well to try this out!

Hugs
