Hot Glue Silver Square

I have recently been experimenting with the Hot Glue Embossing technique with mixed results!  This, to be perfectly honest, is my least favourite so far.  I see too many worms and tadpoles!

Tadpoles?, worms? Fun with Hot Glue Embossing

To see some of my other cards click here or here.

When colouring this one, I was interested to see what would happen if I added some Basic Black ink because it's an ink that doesn't react with water.... and that's exactly what happened!  It didn't react at all - it just sat where I put it, a bit like an oil slick.  At that point, I was convinced that the experiment had been a dismal failure but once dry, I rather liked the almost marble effect that it gave.  The other colours I used were Pear Pizzazz and Elegant Eggplant.

I still find this technique  intriguing and fun .... I just have to practice and get better at it!

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
