Hello friends! This is Linh (or LV Handcrafted on all the socials). This is a fun way to create your own heat embossed ombre effect. I used Delicata ink, which is a pigment ink and remains sticky for period of time to swipe across a white cardstock panel. I made a very solid swatch of ink. Before the ink dried, I covered one end (the bottom) with Mboss powder in gold. I aimed for about 25% of the way up with solid coverage. Then I tipped the panel so the letter “C” is at the bottom and the letter “S” is at the top. Then spooned more Mboss powder from one and and further tipped the panel so it runs down the panel to create that graduated, ombre effect.
When I make panels like this, I really want the panel and the effect to shine, so I like to keep the rest of the card really simple. These word dies are wonderful because they are so big, they nearly take up the entire card. And with a panel this beautiful, I save everything and made a second card using the negative effect of the word die.
NOTE: In the video, you will actually see me create a smaller panel that I decided against using. I used a Sakura glue pen to draw a design over the Delicata-inked panel and then poured Mboss powder over it. The glue pen lets you draw or write anything you want and have that lovely embossed effect.
