Oldies Technique #17 -- Coloring With Embossing Powders

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. It is officially Fall so I want to show you a neat Oldies technique that looks beautiful with leaf stamps. We will be "coloring" with embossing powders.

Supplies you will need:

several colors of embossing powders ( I used powders with glitter in them )
watermark ink ( I used Versa Mark ink )
anti-static bag
paper to catch embossing powders
heat tool

Rub the anti-static bag over the card stock so that the embossing powders do not stick where you do not want it. Ink your stamp with Versa Mark ink and stamp onto the card stock.

Here is the fun part. Take pinches of the powders and sprinkle over the leaves one color at a time. It does not matter if you overlap. The overlapping makes the colors blend into each other.

Take the heat tool and melt the powders. I love how the colors just pop!

That is all there is to it! I hope you have a fun time trying this technique. Have a great day!
