My last video tutorial in the series of “Heat Embossing Techniques” features using the leaves from fake flower bouquets. I have created a flower that, most likely, is NOT “Mother Nature” approved. 😀
A freaky hybridized flower that no botanist would even consider a worthy species to replicate.
Species? I’m not even sure what the classification would be for flowers. Maybe genus?
Whatever the technical name for a flower classification is, I’m positive my featured flower would not be in any of either classification. 😀
Hey, I’m trying to show how you can repurpose things that would normally be tossed in the trash. “Use what you have”.
I used VersaMark Embossing Ink on the green leaves and on some of the red leaves. To get things moving along quicker, I used Glycerine painted on with a brush for a large portion of the red leaves.
Putting the thing together was accomplished with my most HATED tool in my craft room. The Hot Glue Gun. I HATE that thing! Burns, hot glue strings like spider webs, blobs of glue dripping out everywhere. That tool, I just don’t see why so many people use that confounded contraption in their craft spaces.
You have about 20 minutes? You can watch the video below on how I created this Freak Show.
