Melon Mambo Medallion
I'm taking an on-line class to learn more about heat embossing techniques. I know the basics but not sure about adding more colors, layers, etc. The 1st assignment was to use this square card design and to use colored EP to show off a detailed stamp design. I haven't used this stamp set much and thought it a great time to do so. I gave it a summertime feel by using Melon Mambo Embossing Powder which was introduced in the Stampin' Up Summer Mini Catalog. The layer of Melon Mambo card stock was stamped with another one of the Day of Gratitude set in Versa Mark and heat embossed using clear ep. I finished the card with the scallop edge punch, a pink & silver rhinestone brad and cut the outline of the medallion to lift it above the white card stock. I really like the smooth shiny look the embossing gives the medallion.
Thanks for stopping by and as always have a great day!
