Drama with Sparkle

Hi Everyone. I'm slowly getting back into the crafting swing and today I have a bit of dramatic card to share with you all. This one was a bit of a surprise because I've managed to heat emboss a digi image with disco black embossing powder.

As it's the first of the month it means that it is time for the Bling It On! challenge. Thanks to everyone that entered into the first challenge last month. For our second challenge, the theme is to use a digi and some bling. My bling is sparkle in the form of embossing powder and glamour dust.

We're sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digi Stamps and I've been lucky enough to have been given one of their images to play with.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Cooking it up with Katie - Sparkle, Shimmer, Shine

Incy Wincy - Sparkle & Shine

Make It Mondays - Link party

One Stop Craft Challenge - Fairies & Angels

Paper Playtime - Anything Goes

Pixie Dust Studio - Fluttering Wings

Stampin' Royalty - Heat Embossing

Scrap Creations - Fairytales

Top Tip Tuesday - Inspired By Nature

Top Tip:

To heat emboss a digi image like the one I've used here you need to use a silk art card as a base for the printing and set your printer to print at 'best quality'. That way, the ink will be wet enough for embossing powder to stick to it.

Please pop over to the Bling It on Challenge to see the amazing creations made by the design team - it's well worth the visit.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
