Dust, Stamp, Sprinkle, Tap, Heat..... what is that you say?

Dust, stamp, sprinkle, tap and heat. Those are pretty much the steps to heat embossing, sounds pretty simple right?  It would seem to be but then when you think you have gotten it perfect you find a couple specks of color outside of your stamped area.  Just like everything else it all comes down to practice, practice makes perfect or in my case almost perfect is as close as I have yet to achieve. When you look close you can see the specks of color that are out of place in person the specks are barely noticeable but I see them.  I have to say that I am happy with the card overall, just wish I had the proper lighting to capture the true colors of the card.

In the making of this card I used:

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad
VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad
Hampton Art Embossing Powder in Gold and Black
Some random Washi  tape (Black Stripe)
Green 65lb card stock –Top Layer
Cream 65lb card stock – Card Base ( I typically like to use 110lb for card bases)
Darice Heat Gun
