This is a composition notebook that I altered. "Hello Gorgeous" with the first thing my Father In Law would say to me whenever he saw me. The next thing would be "you look beautiful today" Well, that dear sweet man passed away a few weeks ago and I wanted a place to put down those special stories about him.
The lesson for today is:
Paper changes color when you pat it with Versamark ink and then heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
For the title I used the new Ashlyn's Alphabet font from cricut. Then I used the Versamark and clear embossing powder. Heated the letter and then immediately put it back into the powder, tapped off excess and reheat. Three layers of powder to get shiny raised letters.
Here you can see the original color of the letters, it matches the pale blue dots in the background. I did ink the edges of the letters before I did the embossing.
The combination of the Versamark ink (clear) and embossing powder just about turned the blue paper translucent.
I wanted letters that had a little more pop and staying power than just plain paper letters. To
Got to love this spatula that cricut makes! It really helps getting small bits off the sticky mat without ruining them.
Since the paper color changed I used a Micron pen to outline them.
The swirly is from the Home Decor Cricut Cartridge.
As always, I hope you can benefit from my mistakes to NOT make them yourselves. Have a great day
