Playing with Embossing Powder


 Have you ever done this? I call it the 1-2-3 Quick As A Bunny Embossing Technique.  I was showing my friend some different ways to emboss today and this was the one way I showed her.  You lather up the cardstock with your versamark pad where your image is going to go and ink the stamp with versamark.  Then sprinkle embossing powder all over that area.  Heat it.  Then add more embossing powder, this time heating under the paper (so the embossing powder doesn't fly all over the place).  Repeat last step.  Finally, place your image into the melted embossing powder and pull out.  Voila! Hint...use a clothespin to hold the cardstock...it gets REALLY hot!

Then I came home and used my gelatos.
So I ended up with this...
supplies: cardstock - white (unknown), ink-versamark and gelatos (faber castell), stamps - stampin' up, embellishments- gold sequins (dollar tree), gold embossing powder (stampin up)

As I was showing Michelle my mind was thinking about these two challenges...
