Happy Friday Eve! I'm delighted to be a part of a fabulous blog hop today as Altenew have joined forces with WOW! Embossing Powder.
You should have arrived here from Martha Lucia Gomez but don't worry if you haven't, you can start out at Altenew HQ. It's certainly worth hopping along as there's prizes to be won from both Altenew and WOW! :)
For my card, I decided to experiment with a technique I was fascinated by when I was starting out on my stamping adventure: triple heat-embossing. It's an old technique but it was certainly fun to revisit. I applied Altenew Lavender Fields ink onto a piece of Stampbord I dug out from my ancient stash then embossed layer upon layer of WOW! clear embossing powder on top. After my final layer, I pressed the flower stamp from Altenew's Striped Florals stamp set, inked up with VersaMark, into the molten embossing powder and allowed the piece to cool down before carefully removing the stamp to reveal the impressed pattern. A dusting of gold Perfect Pearls highlights the impressed pattern for that extra finishing touch.
That's all from me for this blog hop. I don't want to keep you too long as there's plenty of hopping to be done! Before you hop on though, it's worth commenting as there's two $30 gift certificates from WOW! and two $30 Altenew gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked from comments along the blog hop and all comments must be left by 28th February to be eligible to win. Winners will be announced on the Altenew blog and WOW! blog on Monday 29th February.
Right. Time for you to get hopping! Next on the blog hop is Sarah Jackaman Read. Happy hopping and have a fabulous weekend!
