Here's a technique to start off your week. This may not be new to you but, I bet part of it will be. See I always knew how to change the color of brads by using embossing powder but I used to try to coat the whole thing with embossing ink and then use several coats of embossing powder. It usually resulted in a changed color but it was usually very pitted and uneven looking. Then the gals at my favorite Glitter Company showed me the light! All you have to do is eliminate the the embossing ink. Here i'll walk you through it...
You'll need... An embossing gun (heat tool), Embossing powder, tweezers and brads.
Pick up the brad with the tweezers and heat it up with the embossing gun. I did mine for about 50 seconds or so.
Here's was the magic new part for me... just dip it into the embossing powder.
The embossing powder melts on the hot brad resulting in a smooth shiny finish.
Want some of those trendy glitter brads? After you put on the embossing powder just hit it with the heat gun for another quick second and then dip it in glitter!
What about brad colors that are ugly or you just need something different. You can fix those too...
See all pretty...
Now you can make something adorable with the glittery brads you just made.
I made the card below, and if you'd like it to be yours i'm giving it away to one lucky person this week. Just sign up for my email list and on Sunday i'll pick someone from the list.
Hope you have a beautiful Monday! Smiles!!!
