Hot Glue Embossing Technique

Hi Folks,

Oh I love my crafting so much! I’ve only recently come across the Hot Glue Embossing Technique. Whilst this is probably been around for a while, it is new to me and I absolutely love it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d come across this on Pinterest and checked out Connie MacFarlane’s project to find out how it was done. And it is so easy! Isn’t it impressive. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve made 3 short videos, that hopefully, you will enjoy. Do let me know what you think. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some of my first attempts at it. The Hot Glue Embossing Technique is exciting combined with random watercolouring as you can’t guarantee how it will turn out. Each one will be unique.

I must admit that when I was working on these projects, and allowing time for them to dry, I wasn’t convinced that they were going to turn out quite right. However I couldn’t be more delighted.

If you’re going to try the Hot Glue Embossing Technique for yourself (with watercolouring) then I suggest that you do allow your projects to dry fully and you do mount them to your cardbase before deciding to bin them. I would bet that you will love your finished project once it’s dried and mounted. Do let me see how you get on.
