I always get a thrill when I see my creations on Hochanda Craft tv with WOW! Last thursday was one of those opportunities with a show featuring Changers and Foils.
These Changers are an amazing product and do exactly as you’d imagine by changing the shade of an embossing powder with a slightly textured or shimmery finish.
I created two cards using the Changes kit, the above leaf stamp which shows the different shades of the same colour and the one below using it to create an ombré effect on the background and a contrast on the butterfly.
I had a lot of fun though creating using the Fab Foils. There are so many ways to use the foils but I do prefer using the Bonding Powder as it leaves more of a distressed finish over a painted background.
I can get gorgeous texture as well as shine, especially if I use the Freestyle brush like I have below.
I love this colour scheme at the moment with a splash of gold, it’s so pretty I think.
Here we are at the beginning of April and because of the current situation, i.e. being on lockdown to stop the spread of this awful virus, every day has started to blur into the next. I’ve started to imagine it’s the weekend every day! We’ve had some fabulous sunny days which makes me so grateful to live where I do and have a garden in which to enjoy the sun. I know for a lot of people it’s really difficult right now!
People all over the world are making their own fun and creating a little happiness wherever they can. On social media I’ve seen lots of beautiful rainbows being displayed in windows everywhere, all sizes and formats. WOW! Embossing Powder must have had some amazing forward thinking as the new theme on their Facebook Fan page is Rainbow.
I created my rainbow from these beautiful colours from the Primary’s range, hand painting the brush stroke with the Mixed Media Embossing Brush from Seth Apter. I love how it turned out.
If you’d like to see more rainbow inspired creations or join the fun by designing your own colourful project, go to the WOW Embossing Powder Fans page on Facebook.
I’m a big fan of Scandinavian design and this stamp set was crying out for this look. Keeping it simple with one colour of embossing powder, Primary Pink Robin, created the traditional folk design I was after.
With a large block it was easy to arrange my stamps in a pattern I liked so I could stamp the whole thing in one go. I only had to add the little leaf stalk afterwards. This sort of design would make a lovely Christmas look too.
The second card uses the die set, simply embossing the elements with Primary Chartreuse and Pink Robin twice to get a nice rich depth of colour. I brought in the Cottage Garden stamps to tie the two cards together just using a British Summer grey powder to keep it simple.
