Embossing in different ways

I’m back with more cards featuring embossing. For these two I tried embossing in different ways.

The first one – embossing on vellum. I think I like emboss on vellum more,  then on regular cardstock. And when it comes to feathers – love even more. So I embossed a lot of feathers of different color on vellum and cut them. Then colored the back with COPICs of corresponding color, so all vellum seeing through has color. Then adhered them one of each other in different layers and add the sentiment.открытка перья эмбоссингFor the next card I used technique – embossing with water. I was inspired by Blue Man Group ad that saw on a train station. I’ve been once on their show – that was amazing. Especially that part where they were drumming with paint. That is what I tried to replicate on my card. I just sprayed the from panel with water, added powder and melted it. Then sprayed again and added powder of another color. It was extremely easy and fast. For the sentiment I decided to go multi-color as well. But this time I sprinkled different powders on my stamped with clear ink sentiment to get such effect, and only melted them together one time.

I can say that am very happy with how it turned out. Exactly as I wanted and as I imagine Blue Man Group show 🙂

Do you often get inspired by random things? Like something briefly saw from a moving train?
