I saw Jennifer McGuire and Gina K do this technique and I knew I wanted to try it. Like all of my creations, there's a little bit of mess, but I love how it turned out in the end :)
I started with the Party Wishes and the Party Pants stamp sets from Stampin' Up! Don't forget that Party Pants is a sale-a-bration exclusive and it ends March 31st! Anywho, I started by stamping the balloon image in Versa Mark and then directly into the Daffodil Delight ink. Once stamped, I used covered the image in clear embossing powder. I repeated the same steps for the other balloon and the cake image. This give you colored embossing when you do not have colored powder :)
After stamping and adding embossing powder, I used my heat tool from Stampin' Up! to melt the powder and this is where the fun comes in :)
Once the embossed images are cooled, use a black Stampin' Write marker and color the entire image panel with black ink. I know it sounds crazy, but the embossed sections resist the ink. Just take a slightly damp towel and remove the ink from the images.
I used a Versa Marker to add the tails and embossed using white embossing powder. I then added White Perfect Accents, used the It's My Party Designer Series Paper for a mat and the Stitched Black Satin Ribbon to complete the card base. I added a cute candle from the Party Wishes Bundle.
It's something different and fun and I hope you enjoyed! As always, you can watch the video here or over at youtube. The supplies are listed down below!
