Welcome back friends! Today I’m sharing a card I created using distress oxide inks and embossing glazes. Now the ones I’m using today were previously released but Tim just announced yesterday there is a NEW set of embossing glazes that I’m very excited for.
Most common embossing powders are opaque, meaning we cannot see through them. With embossing glazes, they are a transparent embossing powder so we can see through to what’s underneath. I like to use them with text behind my images.
I have a background that I ink blended with Picked Raspberry, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Broken China. I was able to create a smidge of purple from overlapping my Broken China with Picked Raspberry.
Then I stamped the Friendship Background stamp onto the blended background using Jellyfish Ink from Lawn Fawn.
Once the background was completely dry, I stamped the Heart Mandala onto the background with embossing ink. I sprinkled on a variety of embossing glazes over the stamped image including Kitsch Flamingo, Salvaged Patina, and Cracked Pistachio.
I love how these have a tint of color to them and yet I can still see through to the text background.
I finished off the card by die cutting the Friend word die from Matte Silver cardstock and layering it with 3 more cut from white.
Such a fun and cool technique!
I’ve done something similar to this in a snowflake card that you can view HERE on my Youtube channel.
Don’t forget I have a sales page dedicated to new releases and sales that pop up. You can check that out in my menu at the top of my blog or view the page HERE.
