HEAT IT UP!!



PHEW!!!!! Finally I was able to make a card with heat embossing! And that too, on time! Yes, I,m talking of Karuna's heat embossing challenge. With my lost mojo and lot of things on head, it simply slipped out of my mind. I hope it is good enough for I really had a trying time making this.
I messed up 4 card stocks and stamped and sprinkled but that desired effect was missing. At last this card was finally made. I,ve stamped the background with basic grey-swirl stamp with broken china distress ink. The black flower is my own from my cards and scraps. I stamped it with unity black ink and then used clear embossing powder.Then a little fussy cutting to make the two embellishment flowers. The sentiments are my own and the label and all are also heat embossed. The swirl is from a swap and the blings are from local market.

P.S-The poor quality of photographs is regretted. Can anyone help me with taking good quality pics?

  2. wow aunty.. this is awesome...

    You need to take the picture in ambient light.. the place u r clicking ur pictures does not have sufficient light so that is why it becomes dull... Try taking it during daylight...
