Today I’m up on Lindy’s Gang blog with a new mixed media layout where I will show you how to obtain a rough effect with the embossing powder.
- Stamp randomly with black Archival ink and a text stamp.
- When done, prime the background with clear gesso.
- Add some color with Time Travel Teal, Steel Shimme, and Snazzle Sparkle.
- Add a design on a piece of watercolor with a stencil and modeling paste.
- When dry, color the paper with Steel Shimmer, Scintillating Silver, and Snazzle Sparkle Magical. Dry.
- Add some red with Poincenia Red Flame and Queen of Hearts Red.
- Ink the background chipboard with embossing ink and cover it with Chrome Doesn’t Pay! Chunky EP.
- Heat emboss the powder just enough so that the powder just starts to melt and makes some kind of bubbles to obtain a rough embossing.
- Die-cut leaves and pine branches in a watercolor paper. Color the Ginko leaves with Time Travel Teal, Tainted Love Teal, and Steel Shimmer.
- Color the pine branches with Tainted Love Teal and Stormy Sky. While they are still wet, sprinkle with Desert Moon Turquoise and heat emboss.
- Splatter black cardboard with Scintillating Silver in which die cut some branches.
- Prime some resin medallions with black gesso and color them with silver wax.
- Glue all the elements of the composition with 3D matte gel.
- Finish the layout with sequins and glitters.
And here the step-by-step video which I hope you would enjoy.
