Today I am going to show you a tutorial with not one, not two, but three techniques and believe me, it would not be a long project to make after all.
So here we go- my TRIPLE TECHNICAL TUTORIAL made for IBS stamp company I begin to design for my third year.
1.Dry emboss a piece of thin metal sheet with your favorite embossing folder (I used Cuttelbug art deco frame).
Unfortunately I didn't take a photo of a finished frame only, but you will see the lovely embossed effect over the finished piece. Or just scroll down to see it now...
3. Now let's make the inner frame with Faux Cloisonne technique. First make your own chipboard frame or find a frame that fits the inside part of your outer embossed piece. I made mine in seconds, so you can do it too. Now grab your Clear embossing ink and black Ultra thick embossing powder (UTEE or any other company)
Cover the chipboard with a thick ink layer, add powder and heat emboss it. Make it all around and with several layers until you get this result.
4. Now grab some Pearl Ex powders (you can use Perfect pearls too or any other kind of pearl pigments you own). Cover the COLD frame with a mix of not more then 3 colors.
5. Now the fun begins.You need to work over small parts of your frame and to be fairly fast!
Heat one frame side and stamp your border stamp into a hot border.Let it cool and repeat this step all over the frame. The good thing is that if you made a mistake or don't like the stamped borders, you can reheat the frame and to make it over.
6. Now for the inner part. Stamp your sentiment over the white thick cardstock with permanent ink only! Mist over the stamped sentiment with a similar to your frame color and let it dry.
Cover your dry misted inner card with a thick layer of clear embossing powder and heat emboss it over the sentiment.
Arrange your entire project and enjoy it!
And this is a word I picked as my " altered"word for 2014: TRY
I believe that everything is possible if you just try. Or dare. Let's see if I am right.And now for some challenges too
