GIve Thanks: Using MISTI to Heat Emboss over your Prismacolor Pencil colored images

Hi everyone.  It's Chris here today, sharing a card made with one of the new October release stamps, Give Thanks.

Today I used Prismacolor pencils on kraft cardstock to create my colored image, and heat embossed in gold after coloring.


To create this card, I used my MISTI stamping tool.  First I stamped the image onto my kraft cardstock panel with kraft ink.  I left my stamp set up in my MISTI so I could restamp after coloring.

I used Prismacolor pencils to color within the kraft stamped lines, taking care to use a good variety of colors and intensity of color so that the contrast would show through after heat embossing.


I tried to create highlights with color since the size of the images would not lend terribly well to just variation of pressure.

Once I was happy with my coloring, I simply reinserted my card panel into the corner of my MISTI and stamped exactly over the kraft ink, using Versamark ink.  I then added gold embossing powder and heated with my pre-heated heat gun.  I love how the gold looks on the pumpkins!  It really highlights this gorgeous image.

The panel was then trimmed using a scalloped die, and added to a charcoal brown card base.

This Give Thanks stamp as well as all of the new October release stamps are still 15% off through October 8th!
