Mixed Media {Mon}: Happy 4th of July!!!

Monday, July 04, 2022

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

I made a card today, inspired by the colors Red, White & Blue...

I'm trying out a 3-D embossing folder I got (Star Fall - Sizzix) and the best way to get a good 3-D impression is to spray water on your paper before embossing. The only thing is that you'll have wait for it to dry before using it on a project...

I brushed dye inks on the embossed panel and die cut it. Then, I brushed it with CTMH Clear Shimmer Brush.

Sentiment (CTMH) was stamped and fussy cut, and I also brushed some red inkClear Shimmer Brush before adhering on card with Foam Tape.
