I recorded a video of me brushlettering with embossing ink and using gold heat embossing powder for an awesome card front.
It was just a fail from beginning to end.
The “L” is completely bumpy and the embossing powder was overheated and bubbled up upon heating.
It was just a huge mess…
Can you see how bad the embossing is?
For awhile, I contemplated editing the video and posting it anyway. It would have been a “what not to do” type video. I wanted to show all of my mistakes so viewers would know what to do better than me.
I decided to hold off on it for awhile. I ended up deleting the footage and I’m now working on filming this again.
I do love the gold against the watercolor background, and I really hope I can make this again, with much better quality.
