This was my first time using the Heidi Swapp Invisibles and it was SO much fun! I used inks with the resist pattern to begin with, but I look forward to seeing what else I can do with this innovative product. How cool that the hard part...the heat embossing part...is already done for us?
Since this product has a semi gloss finish, I decided to try a faux wood technique with dye ink pads.
Memory Box stamp: You Make My Heart Flutter
punch: We R Memory Keepers Cropadile
red card stock
start with a clean pad and push into the cranberry ink pad
Start at the top of the frame with your Applicator tool and pull down towards you. You do not want full coverage for this technique.
Use a new pad for your tool. Flip the frame or push the ink from the opposite direction and apply both lettuce and butterscotch ink colors (the order doesn't matter) This is just to add some color contrast. Once you are happy with your pattern, wipe off excess ink.
If you do not have black flowers, simply color with a bold black marker. Start from the center and work your way to the tips
I traced a Heidi Swapp ghost butterfly onto the back of white card stock, but I chose to make the body more narrow to make it more unique.
I cut a heart from red card stock and stacked buttons and a dew drop to embellish the butterfly. I let the sentiment, "You Make My Heart Flutter"...dictate what my embellishment would be. I punched a hole in the frame and added a ribbon bow.
This project can be added to a card base, or used as a title on a scrapbook page, hung on the wall as home decor or just simply used as a decorative tag. I am thrilled that you joined us. :)
