Magi-Boss Chunky with Doodles!

Hi Everyone
Well back from North Yorkshire and one of our favorite haunts, Harrogate. We are all at least 1/2 stone heavier as the food in the Hotel, out in the countryside was superb! Even Barney has put on weight! Don't you just love this week's card featuring our new incredible, amazing Magi-Boss Chunky embossing powder, we have used a mixture of the Copper and Gold on this one. Jennifer, one of our really talented designers made this one using the Doodles Rollagraph. She used the Chocolate Cartridge for the colour on the background and the amazing Versamark Cartridge for the foreground embossed doodles on the mid brown cardstock. She used Versamark to ink up the diamond shape and then a mixture of Gold and Copper Magi-Boss Chunky Powder heat embossed, to a smooth melted layer before pushing in the rubber stamp inked up with Black Memories into the Chunky Powder. She left it to cool for a few seconds and the released the stamp. Magi-Boss Chunky has a different consistency to other UTEE powders in that it remains flexible after heating. Other powders can crack and split off the card after they are layered up and cool. Magi-Boss is flexible and therefore incredibly smooth when it is cool, as you can see from the photo, the reflective qualities of the powder are beautiful and because it has been designed to be used either alone or mixed together, using the shimmering colours together, Shimmering Green Grass, Shimmering Blue Mountain and Shimmering Deep Purple will give you incredibly beautiful reflective backgrounds. We have also produced a Mother of Pearl Chunky Boss and you can see the soft smooth pearly effect on the next card. These powders will transform your crafting so do give them a go. It is difficult to get decent photos of them for the Web Site as you can't get the reflected qualities in a photo or scan but you can see the results for yourself on these samples.
