Embedded Image

Hello Everybody!

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.
