WW9—Heatin’ things up!

Yes, today is Wednesday—and it is time for another “Wacky Wednesday!”
The host for today’s WW-Challenge is the ultra-sweet Bev Gerard.  The very woman who hosted most of the Rubbernecker Design Team, Mr. and Mrs. Rubbernecker, and various stampers who dropped in for an extended weekend in March.  So this week—we have the “hostess with the mostest!!”
She has asked us to heat things up with our projects this week!!  So get out your irons, heat guns, melting pot—and use them in your favorite heated technique!
I chose to heat up some clear embossing powder with my heat gun.
WW9-Simply Fabulous
The silhouetted woman, the shoes and the purses were heat embossed.
***TIP/TRICK***If you want to clear emboss DYE ink—FIRST stamp your stamp on to a watermark or embossing pad THEN onto your dye ink pad.
By clear embossing my images—I was able to sponge my oval (a mask made with a Spellbinders die) and not have it mix with my die ink NOR have it overlap the images.
Stamps: Fashion Icons sets  455 and 456
Paper: Prism Cardstock; dp from Paper Loft;
Ink: Memento Pear Tart; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Black Soot; tempting turquoise-SU!;
Accessories: May Arts Ribbon; clear embossing powder; Nestabilities oval die; Prima Flower; glitter dots; corner rounder and ticket corner punches;
Now check out what the rest of the Design Team has done as well as what you could win by participating in the Wacky Wednesday Challenge this week on the Rubbernecker Stamp Company BLOG!!</ a>
Thanks for stopping by!!

Oh, I just went to my 40th HS reunion (class of 69)and this would have been perfect to take. It is so retro.

Shelly said...

I love the retro feel of this Jules. The layers of embossed images is just awesome and I love the colors too.

Becky said...

This is great, love how this came out,

Dawn Frost said...

I use my dye ink on top of versa mark all the time! Its such a neat trick. Although I go through a lot of clear embossing powder! The colours and silhouette remind me of the sixties, nice card.

Holly said...

Wild and crazy and retro - Groovy! Love the sponged oval shape in the middle!

Candy said...

Super cool card, Juliana!! While Joan also used a silhouette and background images, hers is more warm colors and vintage looking. Yours is really vibrant and hip looking! Wonderful!!!
