Tuesday Tips or Techniques-Embossing in Color!

Have you ever wished you had embossing powder in every ink color Stampin' Up! sells? Well, you actually do. How is that possible? Using VersaMark Ink and ANY ink color, you can achieve colored embossing. Here's how:

The photo above shows you how nice and shiny I embossed with the Cherry Cobbler Ink. I'll show you how I did this below.

Start out with VersaMark Ink, any color of Classic Ink, cardstock, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool and a stamped image of your choice:

Ink your stamp image in VersaMark Ink first and then without stamping, ink again with the colored ink. Stamp image:

Quickly sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder. You want to do this before the ink dries:

TIP: Have you noticed in the photo above that I keep my embossing powders in a plastic Glad container? I also always keep a spoon inside the container when I put it away. This allows me to hold my cardstock piece over or inside the container and the loose powder falls right back in the container after I sprinkle with my spoon!

Heat set with your Heat Tool! Voila....colored embossed image!

Have a great day and come back tomorrow for Wacky Wednesday!
