As last week, I had plenty of time to plan, little time to enact, but some kind of graphic image kept coming into my head.
I applied strips of double sided sticky tape across the card, making sure I left room for the sentiment, which I stamped using versamark. A liberal dusting of gold embossing powder, a quick flick on the back and a zap with the heat tool, and it was done.
A) make should you wipe the surface with anti static, with this quantity of sticky stuff and embossing powder it's really easy to get fingerprint
B) plan on a piece of scratch paper first, once the tape touches the paper there is no turning back.
I really like the effect of the embossing powder on the tape, it's not as smooth as the effect you get using versamark or ink. I think when things settle down a bit here and a little tweaking I will make a couple of sets of these to sell at upcoming craft fairs.
