And on Silk.....

|Embossing on Silk!|
I have printed with Versafine (Onyx Black) & then poured Crystal embossing powder over it. Tap away excess powder & HEAT GENTLY & quickly! Silk will burn if you are not careful -so keep an eye on it & move heat away as quickly as you can. I have used Brilliance inkpads(Lavender & Thyme) to colour, by dabbing the inkpad onto an acryic block and picking up colour with a paintbrush and water. The embossed outline acts as a gutter to contain the ink on the silk fabric. I used the same stamp -Phlox (£6 with a birthday greeting at Japonica) to create a background pattern on the ivory card.
I have used the same method of embossing on the muslin fabric - (Top tip - Muslin is not so delicate as silk). I have echoed the stitching around the purple layer card edge and added Hydrangea Liquid pearls to dots and corners.
