Step 1:

Ink up the base of the card with Spectrum Noir Harmony Opaque pigment ink Oasis and Lemon Tonic. Heat dry it.

Step 2:

Ensure the inked background is static free using an anti-static embossing bag. (I put talcum powder in a cloth bag). Test it by pouring embossing powder over it. If it doesn’t stick to the card, it is ready to be heat embossed.

Stamp the flowers from Altenew’s Floral Shadow stamp set using Spectrum Noir’s watermark ink and sprinkle clear embossing powder over it.

Step 3:

Ink up the whole card (even over the heat embossed images) with Spectrum Noir Bronze Midas metallic ink pad.

Step 4:

Wipe off the ink from the stamped images and the base colours will shine through! Repeat the above steps a few times until you have a nice deep colour on the card.
The sentiment from Altenew is heat embossed on Crafters Companion heat resistant clear acetate.
