Tattered Angels Featured Artist...

As I mentioned in a earlier post, Tattered Angels asked me to be this months featured artist on their website. They posted several of my projects and I answered some fun questions (I even managed to work in a photo of my pretty cat Hanna), you can check it our here. Here are some cards I made last week using Tattered Angels products (some of these are shown in the feature also).

This card shows how you can make any stamp you own into a quasi Glimmer Screen. Just heat emboss a stamped image with clear ink and clear embossing powder, spray Glimmer Mist over the image and then dab/wipe the Glimmer Mist off the embossed portion of the image. In this card the flowers were stamped, embossed and then sprayed with blue Glimmer Mist. The stem is made by using one of the Blossom Glimmer Screens as a stamp. Finally, I added some detail by paper piercing around the flowers and the stem.

Another version of this resist technique is sort of a double emboss resist technique. This is where you heat (wet) emboss over a dry embossed image. Take a dry embossed graphic (either one that you make or one that was bought pre-made) and rub clear embossing ink onto the raised parts of the image, add clear embossing powder and heat emboss. The rest of this technique works just like the stamped version, spray with Glimmer Mist and then dab the image, the mist will wipe off the raised embossed portion of the image.

The two examples below use embossed paper that I bought. I sprayed these cards with multiple colors of mist to create a nice rich composite tone.
