I don't know if this technique has a name or not, but it is awesome! stamped versamark pad on paper, embossed with copper, repeated process twice, before the embossing cooled the third time, I stamped my image into it. One thing to note, if you mess up your image, you can reheat the embossed part and it all melts back down, then restamp your image. Idon't think the picture does the card justice. Hmmm, I wonder how long my copper powder will last if I keep on making these?

The technique is called Triple Embossing. It is always a favorite of mine as well! I like to pour powder onto cardstock and heat it ahead of time then customers just need to heat it and stamp it...viola...done!
Great card by the way! Beautiful effect with the copper!

I've always called the technique "reverse embossing" but I think it has many names. This card is very classy! love it!
