WOW! Heat Embossing on Chipboard

Hello crafty friends! I’m over on the WOW! Embossing blog this month as a guest designer. I love using WOW! Embossing powders to enhance my projects with color, sparkle and dimension. For my first project I’m featuring a Layered Mountains chipboard that I received from Owl Pine Gifts.

As soon as I received this piece, I knew that I wanted to use WOW! Embossing on the layers. This is what the original piece looked like when I received it.

I started by painting all the layers with a light layer of white gesso to ensure the true colors of the paint and embossing powders would shine through. I used PaperArtsy Fresco Acrylic paints to paint each of the layers before I embossed them. For the back layer I used a combination of Peach Nectar and Peachy Keen. I then painted the next layer with a combo of Baltic Blue and Summer Sky.

When all my layers were dry, I painted a light coat of the WOW! Embossing Multi Media tool on the sections I wanted to emboss. I started with the third layer of my chipboard and used Egyptian Turquoise to add a beautiful gold and light blue to it.

Once it was cool, I glued it on to the previous layers. I painted the back of the mountain Globe Thistle and embossed a retried color – Royal Crush. However, I think the new release Fruit Tingle in the Trio Cocktail by Jo Herbet would be an excellent substitute.

I painted the trees with a mixture of South Pacific, Cerulean, and Baltic Blue for a dark green look and then embossed a portion of the trees with Aquamarine powder for a fun sparkly highlight.

For my final layer, I decided the sparkle and gold in Sparkling Sand would tie all my colors together. 

This was such a fun project and I love the way these embossing powders add an extra dimension and sparkle to this layered chipboard.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
