RN Heat Gun challenge



The challenge on the Rubbernecker blog this week is to use your heat gun. I bought this stamp of stained glass daisies from Rubbernecker, and I've been itching to use it. I stamped the image with Black Craft ink from Stampin Up, covered it with clear embossing powder, and used my heat gun to melt the powder.

Then came the fun part! I pulled out my old Twinkling H2O's - remember those?? - and started coloring. I didn't want to think about shadows and lights, I just wanted to color. Who doesn't love a little shimmery goodness on their cards? :-)

Stamps: stained glass daisies (Rubbernecker)
Ink: Black CRAFT (Stampin Up)
CS: Cool Caribbean, Yo Yo Yellow, White (all from Stampin Up)
Twinkling H2O's: Heavenly White, Celestial Sun, Wild Vine, Tahitian Blue
Other: clear embossing powder (Stampin Up), Cool Caribbean ric rac ribbon (Stampin Up), white tafetta ribbon (Stampin Up), yellow sheer polka dot ribbon
