Create a unique look by stamping an embossed image on embossed background.
- Cardstock or patterned paper
- Versamark™ , or other embossing ink
- Ink (color of your choice)
- Clear Embossing Powder
- Colored Embossing Powder (color of your choice)
- Heat gun
- Stamps (silhouettes tend to work best)
Stamp cardstock or patterned paper with a script or tight patterned background in ink color of your choice.
You can skip this step if you are using a patterned paper.
If you are going to die cut your image, do that now. With Versamark™ , use the direct to paper technique to apply a layer of ink.
Cover the image with clear embossing powder and heat set. Wait 2-3 minutes and then repeat steps 2 and3. Allow image to cool.
Stamp your main image onto the embossed piece using Versamark™.Cover the area with a contrasting color embossing powder (seafoam green used here). Heat set.
