Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop - Technique


Hello and Welcome to another Ink It! Stamp It! Design Team
Blog Hop.....this month our theme is Technique.

I absolutely love Embossing of all sorts so I would love to
share one of my personal favorites which is reverse embossing.

You can create some amazing effects with just a bit of Versamark, embossing powder
and some co-ordinating ink colours.

Here is my creation:

  
One of my favorite Stampin' Up® colours is Pacific Point and when its teamed up
with some dazzling diamonds and reverse embossing I think it makes a gorgeous Christmas
card.....the ink colours I used were Marina Mist on the snowflakes and Soft Sky
in between. 

So to start this project I rubbed the chosen piece of cardstock (Shimmery White) with the wonderful
little embossing buddy and then randomly stamped the snowflakes on with Versamark.
Once I applied the white embossing powder I heated it up with the heat gun and then
allowed it to cool.....and then the inking fun starts.  You just rub the ink where you want
your effect....I used a sponge dauber in a circular motion.  When you are finished, lightly
rub over the embossed snowflakes with a tissue to remove any residual
ink and to make those snowflakes POP!

I hope you enjoy our blog hop today and be sure to check out everyone's 
wonderful creations, just by simply clicking on their names below.
