Resist embossing killed my heat gun...

I am very sad lady, my heat gun is no more, despite valiant efforts by OH it has been pronounced deceased which puts paid to a few things I'm working on until I can get my grubby mitts on a new one.

However, here are a couple of bits I managed to do before the end, with resist emboss backgrounds and UTEE tiles.














I was actually trying to re-create the success I had with this one that I made a week or so ago. Maybe I didn't use the right colours together for this technique or my clear embossing wasn't good enough but somehow I don't think they turned out quite so well. Hey ho, it's all trial and error, sometimes more of the latter. So with no heat gun, it'll be back to image transfers for the rest of the week....

This heading sounds like the title of a book or a song - lol! Not funny though about your heat gun, at least you've a bright new one to look forward to. Great pieces as usual anyway.

I think these are great, and I love the colours you've used. I can sympathise with you about the heat gun as the same thing happened to me a few months ago. It's very frustrating, especially when you're in the middle of something. I've got a Heat Buddy one now and it's brilliant - quiet, very hot and it doesn't try and blow my UTEE away (I use about half as much as I used to).
