I initially made this project as for Frilly and Funkie using Tim Holtz’s Tattered Florals die, layers of ink, stencils, and embossing powder. In the picture below, I’ved used Texture Fades to dry emboss all three flowers:
They look interesting, but check out how much better they are after I heat emboss them, too.
Just press the entire piece into a Versamark pad.
Then cover the flowers with clear embossing powder and heat with a heat tool. I keep my clear powder in a large Tupperware bin and layer it on with a plastic spoon.
Once they were all done, I realized they were too similar and I needed some contrast. So I cut a plain black flower and dry embossed it, and then cut another shape entirely and just heat embossed it (so it’s totally smooth, almost glassy, with no added texture):
I used small chipboard pieces to pop up the top two layers
I ended up going with 3 of the 5 flowers, and saved the others for another project. Here’s my finished card:
