I'm here today to remind you about the challenge going on at CAS Mix Up and to complete my Guest Designer spot there.
The technique for this challenge is layered embossing which gives such a richness, depth and vibrancy of colour. If you've never tried this technique before - and I hadn't until this challenge - I really recommend you have a play, you'll be delighted with its look.
For this reminder post I've used Uniko stamps and a Winnie & Walter die and given them a fresh new look that really sparkles and shines.
I stamped and coloured the Uniko bloom and then die cut it plus a couple of plain layers. I then swiped a Versamark ink pad all over before heat embossing using hologram powder. I repeated this embossing technique two more times.
The happy die cut was treated in much the same way, except that I use pearl plum embossing powder for the first layer and then the hologram powder for the next two layers. I just love how sparkly and bold the effect of this technique is.
