I love the look of heat embossed "metallic on metallic." The look is so striking, so I ended up using this technique to embellish two silver pails that became plant holder accent pieces in my craft room.
I stamped a dragonfly from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set onto a scrap of Silver Foil paper using VersaMark ink and then sprinkled on the Silver Embossing powder. After tapping off the excess powder, I used the Heat Tool to melt the powder (heat emboss). And this was the result.
I then trimmed out a shape to match the frame (thankfully I had another piece that was already that size - saved from when we had a punch that matched that frame shape).
The silver frame shown above is a retired Stampin' Up! product that I had been saving - one for each pail. I curved each frame around its pail, marked the holes, and punched them with a Crop-o-dile tool so brads could go through.
And this is where my plant holders sit. One is above my computer/work area in the office side of my room...my NEW room (which is officially complete as of yesterday...a bunch of photos will come next week).
And one is above my work area on the crafting side of the room.
Oh! And did you see my fun storage pieces for my ink pads, markers, and 12x12 papers in the craft side of my room photo? Stamp-n-Storage, the company that makes them just announced a new product! I think I may have to get one to intermix a few drawers with my 12x12 paper holders. Click here to check it out on Periscope.
