Heat & Stick Technique

Here's a card made using the Delicate Doilies stamp set with heat and stick powder. 

First, stamp the image in Versamark and sprinkle the H&S powder over the top.   Next, heat it till the powder turns to liquid.  Sprinkle glitter over the top and heat again briefly to set.

I love the effect this gives, but it can be a little tempermental so it's worth trying it out first to see how your stamp works.  Fine details are easily lost, so make sure you are using superfine glitter.

The DSP is Mocha Morning Specialty - it makes me sad just looking at it because it's retired :(  If this was a touchy screen you could feel the flocking on the paper!   The Organza ribbon & faceted button (both current) add an elegant finish.  A perfect wedding or engagement card, me thinks!

Thanks for stopping by!
