PTI MIM #243: Ink Blending Over Heat Embossing

So, all the hullabaloo is over after March's release, and now we're just waiting for more new goodies to arrive. Danielle Flanders shared her talents and Bloomin' Cute cards in a video on her blog as well as on Nichole's blog here. This week's Make It Monday Challenge is a technique using ink blending over heat embossing. It adds a whole different dimension to backgrounds or focal images. I'm remaining very optimistic that Spring is in the air, and that's why I used the beautiful sentiment from Tulip Time on this card.




Besides the two obvious black gems, I also adhered one to both "i's" in the sentiment. You might not be able to see this without enlarging the photo. I definitely plan to use this blending/embossing technique in the future because I really do like the added dimension. Thanks, Danielle, for sharing your talents with us!
