Technique Tuesday -- Scratch N Sniff

Hi and welcome back to Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday! I took a week off because of the holiday. I hope you had a great one! I have not done this technique in ages, but it is a fun one for kids and big kids alike! I love interactive cards don't you? Well, hop on over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to see how you can make a neat scented card.

First I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink because I then colored with alcohol inks.

Next I mixed Black Cherry Kool Aide with Winter Berry embossing powder.  I bought invisible Kool Aide (clear) in a watermelon/kiwi flavor because I wanted to color my images and emboss in clear. Sometimes the Kool Aide color is too dark . So I mixed the invisible Kool Aide and clear embossing powder together. Make sure to use SUGAR FREE Kool Aide so that when you heat the mix it doesn't have the burnt sugar smell. I mixed half Kool Aide and half embossing powder.

Use an embossing pen to color the areas you want embossed.  I embossed the cherry using the Winter Berry mix and the cupcakes using the clear mix.

Finish coloring and assemble card! Tell the recipient to scratch the cupcakes for a sweet aroma.

P. S.     I have also heard that you can add chocolate pudding to embossing powder for a chocolate aroma! Have fun!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
