"Hello" - Handmade Mesh and Heat Embossing

Heya friends!!

I hope you guys are having fun with this month’s theme of mini albums.. You’ve got two more days to enter our monthly challenge!! So better hurry…

Check the link below for more details..

Now for the card I made today..

It’s a fun little card.. I’ve woven strips of card stock together for the background! The butterfly is clear embossed and later colored using Micia’s blue pigment inkpad!! I am in love with this ink color.. it seems a bit different in the photo but in actuality it’s a very pretty deep blue color.. a very rare color to find, I think! This color will definitely make it to my top 10 favorite ink colors. :) The texture of the ink is very nice and not too creamy which makes it very easy to work with.

I also did a little experiment of embossing on a Washi tape.. and here is the result!! The sentiment embossed just perfect! Do make sure to rub your anti-static pad on the tape before you emboss.

TIP: If you dont an anti-static pad then just substitute it by rubbing some talcum powder on the surface before you emboss.

Thats all for today, folks!

Promise to be back with another fun project soon!

Until then, happy crafting!
