Technique Tuesday – Faux Metal


Faux Metal


1) Cut card stock to desired size and stamp the VersaMark ink pad (#102283) over the entire piece.  Sprinkle Gold (#109129) or Silver (#109131) Stampin’ Emboss Powder over card stock piece.

2) Heat powder using our NEW Heat Tool (#129063).  Sprinkle on additional powder while the image is still hot, and reheat.  Repeat at least three times.

3) To create image, ink your stamp with VersaMark ink (to avoid sticking) and press into warm layers of embossing powder.

Tip:  Have your inked stamp ready to use immediately after the last time you heat the powder.  If you wait too long, the embossing will harden to the point that you won’t be able to create an impression with your stamp (if this does happen, simply reheat the card stock piece).

Happy Stampin’ !    -Sandra-
