I am so excited to share with you the month's technique at Technique Time Tuesday! This month's technique is to use embossing powder to embed a stamp image-and this technique is so cool. I think melting embossing paper is magical already but to add the stamp in a different color embossing powder-is just wow! It all looks like one element.
So here's my card. The Eiffel tower is the embedded image. I first took a square of white cardstock and stamped a script background stamp in walnut stain distress ink. Then I covered it in clear embossing powder a couple of times. I used Wow embossing powder which is thicker than other brands. Then I stamped the Eiffel Tower on the square (using versamark) and covered it with black embossing powder. You can't feel the Eiffel Tower. How cool is that! So with a brown Staz On ink I stamped the hot air balloon. I rubbed some alcohol inks on the embossed square (since it's now non-pourous right!)
I stamped the sentiment on a beige card stock using walnut distress ink (Tim H.) and used other distress inks to color the background. Then I used some more of the clear embossing powder for it. One note though-although it's clear the embossing powder does seem to make the ink darker.
Here's a clow up of the embedded image.
