Inspired By Stamping : Highlighting your Embossing

Hi All, Welcome to today's blog post.  One of my favourite all time techniques is heat embossing. Today's technique is a simple way to enhance your heat embossed image by highlighting with a marker. I have used a copic marker (R20) which is close to the colour card stock I have chosen for today's card.



I have traced around the heat embossed image and highlighted certain areas of the stamped image to make the image like its poppy of the image.
Super fine white embossing powder has been used for the card which has been embossed on Blushing Bride cardstock.

I have used 2 fabulous Inspired By Stamping stampsets for today's Card - 1. Water Lily & 2. Happy Occasions. Both stampsets are very useful and a"must have" in your collection.
Hope you liked today's card. I kept it simple to highlight this technique.

I have placed designer series paper on a blushing bride card base. The designer series paper comes close to the colour combination. to stamp with. The technique I have used for the stamped image is marker direct to stamp. The 3 markers I have chosen are Baja Breeze, Island Indigo and Rose Red using the Just Because stampset.

To help embellish the card I have used a pleated satin ribbon. 

Hope you enjoyed today's card.
