I really love the effect of using the Stampin’ Blends over heat embossing (AKA Black Magic Technique). It seems to really give a vibrancy to the images. I showed one with the Epic Celebrations set yesterday. Today it is the Beautiful Peacock set.
The Beautiful Peacock set is one of the Sale-A-Bration Free choices. I haven’t used this a lot but it is quite a fun set. I have seen some fantastic samples with it.
To create the Black Magic Effect
Stamp your image in Versamark and Heat Emboss in White Embossing Powder. When cooled colour over the embossing with the Stampin’ Blends. (The Blends will not be available to order now until late May but store this idea in mind for later if you haven’t got them yet). The Blends colours I used were the Light Old Olive, the Dark Daffodil Delight and the Light Rich Razzleberry.
I stamped the Peacock body on a scrap piece of black card and then coloured it and cut it out with scissors. This was then raised up off the card with Dimensionals.
To finish the card stamp your sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist card and cut with the smallest of the Lots of Labels Framelits. I added some loops of Silver Thread under the label piece before raising it up off the card with Dimensionals and added some Rhinestones in the centres of the Flowers. The card base is Sweet Sugarplum.
Only a week left for Sale-A-Bration. I am sad with so many of these great sets leaving. Don’t miss out to grab your Free set with your qualifying order.
