March Blog Hop...Techniques
In this layout I chose to do some embossing. This is fairly simple to do. First you ink up your stamp with Versamark. This is a "sticky" clear ink pad that stays wet a little longer than a regular ink pad. Then you sprinkle your embossing powder onto the wet versamark ink. Swoosh the embossing powder around until the entire image has embossing powder on it. Then you tap off the excess powder and return it back into the bottle so there is no waste. Next, you heat the image with your heat gun until the powder melts and turns shiny. And then you are done! On the above layout I embossed the design on the Christmas Ornaments on the left page and the snowflakes on the right page. Also on the right page on the frame that surrounds the photo of me and my granddaughter I embossed it as well.
