Hi! It's time for the second challenge on the Scrapy Land blog. This challenge is to incorporate heat embossing to your die cut shape(s).
To create the multi-colored flowers, I cut the Hollyhocks three different times, each using a different color patterned paper; green for the stalks and two pinks. I used the green die as the base and then carefully cut the flowers from the pink papers and adhered them over the green base. I then used a clear ink pad along with clear embossing powder to the flowers (the stems have a bit of heat embossing, but not much as the ink basically stuck to the more raised pink areas).
It was a little work, but well worth the effort!
"thanks" was cut with a white cardstock and heat embossed using clear ink and clear embossing powder. The end result is almost a plastic effect and looks really cool since I didn't use a heavy-weight cardstock.

Be sure to head on over to the Scrapy Land blog to see the gorgeous work that the designers created for this challenge as well as to enter your card or project for the challenge. ***Please remember that all dies used to create your entry should be dies that can be purchased in the Scrapy Land store. I look forward to seeing what you create!
