Love You Much Sparkly Flower
I just love this technique. We saw this technique at the Virginia Beach Regional this past November. I love new ways to use products that we already have. The Pretties Kit is shown on page 185 in the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog and sells for $29.95. The possibilities are endless with all of the components in this kit. For this card, I used the Riding Hood Red stamp pad and just pressed the flower directly down onto the stamp pad to dye the flower. Then I dipped the it into Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. The powder sticks to the flower since the ink stays wet a little longer on the fabric. Heat emboss the flower and watch how beautiful it turns out. You can use this technique with any embossing powder. The Clear powder makes the flower look almost glassy. I love how easy this is, but what a wow you'll get when you give this to someone you love! Try it out, you'll love it too.
