On Tuesday the amazing Gina K posted this wonderful video, the card in question uses the lovely new STV kit Wishing you Joy, and a heat embossing technique. Previously the talented Jennie Harper posted on FB about a gold ink by Tsukineko and how she had achieved the "embossed look" without embossing!
Well after seeing the card Gina created, it made me think "could I achieve an even simpler version of Gina's Holiday card?
Well the results are below!
Well I think you will agree, it looks like a direct copy!
Instead of using Versamark and embossing powder, all I used was this amazing ink!
As in Gina's Video, where she used the Versamark ink pad, I wiped the golden ink and let it dry.
I used the same embossing folder as Gina for my layers.
The process was repeated for the smaller layer.
The image was again stamped using the golden ink instead of the Versamark.
The end result!
This card is a direct copy of the card on Gina's video, the technique is not. This ink will not stop me using my embossing powders and heat tool, but if you do not have the tools for heat embossing, or you want to save even more time making your cards this Christmas, then perhaps this ink is for you!
I would like to say a huge thank you to Gina K and Jennie Harper for the inspiration for this card!
