A second card I made for my Secret SBS2 Sister the super-talented Maria.
To emboss resist the dragonflies just:
2. Stamp over them in Versamark with Define Your Life stamps (or any texture stamp or background)
3. Put clear embossing powder over the Versamark & heat it
4. Allow to cool & go over with a sponge and a reinker wash (Tempting Turquoise here.)
5. Dry & cut out.
I liked the way the effect turned out, so being a weirdo I wanted to do something with the scraps. Punched with a circle punch they made a super quick, but somewhat detailed, scallop:
Centering your circle scallops: If you layer & cut your mat to fit your image first, and flip it over & mark the center in pencil on the back of your mat, then you can start adhering the circles in the middle and work out. You just trim the ends. It gives you a perfectly even scallop every time. Using your cutting mat to make sure they all stick off the same distance makes it super quick.
Thanks so much for taking time out of your day!
ETA P.S. A fab video that shows this scalloped edge method (and other great ones)
