Crafty Creations Challenge #149 - Heat Embossing

Hello eveyone!  It is time again for another Crafty Creations Challenge.  This week we are trying to warm up ... so we are to use HEAT EMBOSSING!  

I took my inspirationn from this tag.  See the words clear embossed all over it.  Very Cool.  Maile Belles does this often - like HERE

So, I started out by printing this lovely digital butterfly by Patty onto white cardstock.  Then, I added the flowers (Life, Papertrey Ink) in Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey Ink).  I then stamped the leaf border image (from Modern Basics, Papertrey Ink) along the bottom of the panel using Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Just to ensure I used enough heat embossing, I also used white embossing for the sentiment!

Here is the close-up of the clear embossing over the flowers.  A very cool effect.

Now you will want to go see what the rest of the Crafty Creations Design Team 2 did with heat embossing:

Have a great day ... and hopfully all this heat embossing keeps you warm!!
