A quick one – I wanted to share a few things. First, the fact that at least on my photo paper (which is Polaroid Canvas paper, 10 sheets, from the £ store) I am able to emboss on it. The heat gun does not damage the paper at all. So I did a couple of samples, experimenting.
I stamped and embossed (black ink, clear embossing powder) and them dripped the ink over it and daubed with a baby wipe.
This one in reverse, daubing the ink then stamping and embossing. The ink dries very fast and does not allow the embossing powder to cling to it – or at least my combo of supplies doesn’t.
Now this last was just a trial – I wasn’t sure what would happen but I dripped the ink onto the photo paper, then blotted it off with plain printer paper (that is the piece on the left.) But then I filled in the white areas with drips of yellow to really brighten it up and daubed that off with another sheet – and I love that misty, pale piece the most.
I can see using any of these for ATC or cards or stuck in an art journal or punched out or cut as letters. I might take some time next week to play with some of these practice pieces and see what I can turn them in to, just for fun.
Have a great day tomorrow!
