Simple Heat Embossing with Big Impact - Wednesdays with Wow!

Good Morning, Darlings!
We're a little ways into August, and I'm super excited to share that I will be collaborating with Wow! Embossing Powders for the month, in a new series called Wednesdays with Wow!

I came across Wow! powders at Creativation, and it was the first time I saw the full lineup IRL. I was jaw-on-the-floor impressed by the quality and colors of this entire range! I also learned so much - did you know each jar is painstakingly treated to be static-free (which means the powders have minimal fly-aways and emboss cleanly)? Needless to say, I've become a fan, and I am so excited to share my projects with you and how I've used the powders...they've definitely become a staple in my craft room. 

To kick things off, I've focused on a technique I've been loving lately.
Embossing + Marker Flick Coloring. It's a perfect way to ease into using outline stamps and embossing powder. Some techniques can get very advanced, but this one is super easy to work with, even at a beginner level.

To start, I used my embossing buddy to pre-treat the stamping area. I did try it without, and it worked just as well! The anti-static treatment works wonders. Following that, I stamped my image using the Wow! Embossing Pad, and sprinkled on some Platinum embossing powder. I heat-set everything with my heat tool, and voila! Perfectly embossed floral. To finish off my floral, I used some marker flicks, starting at the center of the flower, and pulling my marker strokes outwards. I added a couple of shades to the petals and the leaves for a bit of variation.

To finish off my card, I added a heaping of marker-drawn polka dots, for a whimsy look. If you wanted something a little more uniform, a polka dot stamp would work wonderfully too. I stamped a sparkly sentiment, in Platinum Sparkle, which has the same hue as the metallic powder, but SO much gorgeous sparkle! I was blown away by how beautifully it embossed, too. Definitely the cleanest lines of any sparkly powder I've come across.

This quick card is such a fun and simple way to dip into embossing powders. It's also perfect for tiny crafting hands. Join me next Wednesday, as I share more advanced ways to use these gorgeous mediums!
