The Serendipity Design Team is sharing creations today. Our theme was to Heat it up using Heat Embossing somewhere on our design. Check out what the other gals came up with today: Amy - Miriam - Jeanne
I thought I would ink up this little patchwork pumpkin and color it up. This is a great image to paper piece too! But it is hard for me to not use Copics. I stamped the image in Memento's Espresso Truffle ink, my new absolute favorite ink color. Yes... the challenge was to use heat embossing and I did, but I did it on the inside of the card! I'm not a fan of using Copics with heat embossed images.
Above you can see the colors I started with to add a little glow around the outside. I used Y28 to color the ground. I used Spellbinder's Labels One to cut out the image and before removing the paper from the die I added the piercing, using the inside edge as a guide.
Above are the Copics I used to complete the pumpkin. I stamped the image twice and cut out the leaves from the second stamping after I colored them. I curved them gently to have a little dimension and used Dimensional Silicone to apply them over the original leaves.
Above is the inside of the card... and the heat embossing! I used my Copics to color in the leaves. I stamped with Versafine Sepia Brown and used Clear EP to heat emboss.
I hand cut a brown layer around the image, and popped it with foam tape. The ivory layer is also popped up with foam tape adding a little dimension. The finished card is 4 1/2" square.
