This would be called Reverse Resist Glass Etching, as you get your stamped image etched instead of the surrounding glass etched.
Here are the directions:
1-Ink the bottom of the plate with VersaMark.
2-Cover with embossing powder.
3-Ink your image that you want etched in VersaMark.
4-Stamp your image into embossing powder, removing powder.
5-Clean stamp and repeat steps 3 & 4. (doing this more than once will remove more embossing powder, producing a less speckled image.)
6-Heat image with heat tool, melting the powder.
7-using a cotton swab, dab etching cream onto the exposed glass that you want etched.
8-Let set for 5-6 minutes.
9-Wash off etching cream, making sure that it doesn't touch the part of the glass that is not embossed, or you will get specks on your project.
10-Scrpe of the melted powder and your finished!

I'm VERY intimidated to try this out...but this is one I so can't pass up! I think I prefer the image being etched than the plate bottom. P.S. LOVE your tut in your blog. I added it to my favorites for when I do give this a try!
