Hello and welcome to our challenge for SUO - we are exploring all embossing fun - both heat embossing, and using embossing folders. The possibilities are fabulous!!
My card features both!! How cool is that! I'm feeling rather pleased with my finished result!
I've used heat embossing to create the ripples on the sea and the moon. I stamped with versamark onto shimmery white paper, and then embossed with clear powder. I've then used my aqua painter and some Dapper Denim ink to create a wash over the top of the embossed ripples for the sea while leaving the centre only lightly coloured to represent the reflection on the water.
The sky is coloured in Night of Navy over the moon and the birds (which were stamped with black and embossed again in clear powder), and the lightbeam is stamped in So Saffron. I really love how this has turned out!!
And then in the background, I've used Dappen Denim cardstock which has been through the Big Shot with the Seaside folder. I mounted this over some Night of Navy cardstock, and then the whole panel was mounted on some Early Espresso.
The lighthouse image is a 2 step stamped image with fantastic realistic results!! After a couple of attempts, I found it easier to stamp the Watermelon Wonder first, and then the Basic Grey shadow over the top - this shadow piece adds all the extra little details. I fussy cut the lighthouse and then mounted it onto dimensionals to overlap the watercoloured image.
The greeting is stamped with Basic Grey and cut out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
