This week, I've been working on some flowery cards using some heat emboss techniques. The sunflower was stamped with the VersaMark pad, and then heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I should have taken a picture at this step, because the sunflower looked very pretty, just a darker yellow tone on the So Saffron card stock. I went one step further and used some sponges to bring out a little more color to the sunflower. The sponged colors get into all the negative parts of the stamped image, the parts that don't hold the embossing powder, and give it a subtle pop.
I had a piece of burlap ribbon beside me, that was already shredded from a past experiment gone bad. (I love some burlap, but that stuff is a mess!) It was just what I needed to finish off the card.
