Take a look at our reader testers’ cre­ations on the next page!

Jan­ice Why­mark Q Tell us about your em­bossed el­e­ments…

A I used white glit­ter em­boss­ing pow­der with a pale pas­tel back­ground for the card base and white em­boss­ing pow­der over more vi­brant colours for the main flow­ers.

Q Do you have any tips to share?

A It is al­ways worth rub­bing an anti-static bag over the pa­per first when em­boss­ing to get a clear im­age. Also don’t cut too closely to the fin­ished im­age as it may crack and

Sue Cass Q What did you think of this flo­ral project?

A The Hunky­dory stamps are lovely and re­minded me of a Man­dela so I’ve done a slightly more ca­sual, arty ver­sion by not cen­tring the em­bossed flower lay­ers.

Q You’ve used an old book as some of the flower lay­ers – tell us about it!

A Be­cause the colours are so vi­brant I in­ter­spersed text lay­ers to add in­ter­est and def­i­ni­tion. Years ago I bought a re­ally old book on­line and these pages are all about flower ar­rang­ing so quite ap­pro­pri­ate!

Kath­leen Broughton Q How did you make your bou­quet card?

A I stamped and heat em­bossed the Hunky­dory stamps us­ing white WOW! Em­boss­ing Pow­der and then painted them with Spec­trum Noir Aqua Pens. The leaves I stamped as nor­mal and added glit­ter to help them stand out. I made other flow­ers us­ing Dreamees stamps and coloured them in. I ar­ranged the blooms into the flower pot.

Q What other tech­niques did you use?

A I also em­bossed the back­ground and inked over it to add def­i­ni­tion. The flower pot is em­bossed too.
