- embossing powder
I actually went through a lot of decisions before I ended up with this one. I was going to do some image transfer onto fabric, changed my mind and thought about using the fabric I had already coloured and stamped onto, then changed my mind again and used the flames from my Betty Boop fabric. There is red and black embossing powder on the edges (even though it looks white at the bottom – that is just reflection). The tag was painted red. The skeleton was embossed with black powder then coloured in white Gesso. This was then very lightly sponged with Rusty hinge to take away the brightness of the white. The edges were stamped with black Stazon and distressed with Black soot and Fired brick. The flames from the fabric were stuck to down then red embossing powder was sprinkled over the bottom half of the tag and heated from below. The flames still looked a bit bright so I went over them lightly with some distress ink Black soot. I did manage to get a bubble under the paint when I as in a hurry to dry it but actually I don’t think it matters.
