Dazzling Diamond Dust
by Beate Johns
Let your images sparkle with this easy and "glitter controlled" technique.
- Embossing Ink
- Iridescent Ice® Embossing Powder
- Neutral Colored Cardstock
- Stamps, Unity's Savor the Journey used here
- Coloring Medium, Copic Markers used here
- Heat Gun
- Powder Pals® (optional)
Stamp your image on neutral Cardstock. Let dry.
Color your image and cut it down to the size you need. Petite Oval Nestabilities were used here.
Cover the entire piece of cardstock with embossing ink.
Leave your Nestabilities Die template on your cardstock if you don't want the edge of the cardstock sparkly.
Place the cardstock over the Powder Pal™. If you don't have one, use a piece of copy paper. Pour iridescent ice embossing powder all over the cardstock.
Tap off the excess embossing powder.
Heat the embossing powder until it gets shiny.
The color of your image will appear brighter once the embossing powder is melted.
Finish your card.
Use a brayer and cover your cardstock with one color. Add powder and emboss. Use that for a great sparkling background.
Substitute Embossing ink for a glue pad and Iridescent Ice Embossing powder for fine clear glitter.
