messed up embossing

Hi lovely crafty friends,

Sometimes things don’t go as planned and that’s not always a bad thing. Let me show you what started good, turned bad and then let into a super cool result. The messed up embossing technique, I will teach you how you can mess it up too!

In the video I share all the best tips and tricks with you so you can create your own messed up embossing project. 

If you haven’t seen the Spray Safe video yet, make sure to check it out. In it I show you how you can use your sprays in a safe way. Or you can go to the matching blogpost.

I coloured a few flowers with dylusions shimmer spray. This is a gorgeous spray with some amazing shimmer in the same colour as the spray. It is a bit messy though, so wearing gloves is a good option/idea, but it’s totally worth it!

I wiped up the ink and now use that to colour an embossed card. There is so much pigment in this ink that wet wipe colouring is a great option too!

I used this big grained embossing powder, that I added on the flowers. About half the big chunks of embossing powder melted on the flower creating these amazing big drops.

The next layer were the super cute mini prills, that I melted into the embossing powder.

I added some white thread on the embossed card, for an extra fun touch. The mini prills have different sizes as you can see in the close up even better. And they have no problem with the heat from the heat tool.

Here’s another card done in the same way. But then with an embossed layer with fine powder first. And after that the bigger chunks which holds better.

By colouring the embossed background with the same ink, you can be sure it will match with the flower. Here I used Distress Oxide Ink and Spray which is a nice opposite from the sparkling Dylusions spray.

The silver prills are such a great match with the Weathered Wood Oxide spray. And this grey white card turned out quite elegant.

Now you can get ready to mess things up too and give this technique a try. Thanks for stopping by and make sure to keep on crafting!
