Technique Tuesday – Heat Embossing with Water!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know what that means! I have a fabulous technique to share with you and today we are heat embossing with water!!! Just splatter water all over and pour the powder on top!!!

Heat Embossing with Water,

I just love this stunning gold and purple card! It’s so wonderful…..just like the greeting says!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Then I took a piece of Elegant Eggplant measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and dripped/splattered water all over with an Aqua Painter! A good splatter can be done by tapping/hitting the Aqua Painter on your finger for that bump that makes the water fly. See the video tutorial below for that in action….I’m not sure how else to explain that. 🙂

Once the desired amount of water is on the cardstock, I poured Gold Embossing Powder over the top and the powder sticks to all the water spots. Using the Heat Tool, I melted the powder. The larger drops are full of water and you will notice the water wiggle below the powder when the heat tool blows it around. In order to not make the splatter drip or blow, I would apply the heat a little and then move to another spot and then come back again, repeating this a few times till everything was melted. I love watching the bubbles wiggle though. It’s so magical!

Golden Splatter,

After I set the powder with the Heat Tool, I added this piece to the card front and then added decoration. I used the Cake Soirée Stamp Set and coordinating Sweet Cake Framelits Dies (Bundle & Save 10%). The cake was stamped in Elegant Eggplant Ink onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock. I used Gold Foil Paper for the cake stand and bow! When adding it to the card front, I did the cake stand flat and the cake with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen, I added the bow to the top.

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Cake Soirée Stamp Set in Elegant Eggplant Ink and punched either side with the Pretty Label Punch for that cut little rounded edges. Using a Sponge Dauber, I brushed a little color on all of the edges and added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished it off with some Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes on either end!!!

    • Here is a video I did on the basics of traditional heat embossing –
      The bonus to doing it with water is that you don’t need the Versamark Ink or a stamp. You can create splatters and other images by hand. If you have any questions while trying it, feel free to reach out! I’m always happy to help! ~Laura
