Found a fun technique today

I was looking for something new to do with my stamps, and found out that you can "paint" with embossing powders. Did you know you can do this? I just got some new Stampendous stamps from CREATIVITY BOUTIQUE andwanted to do something special with them. Here are the tools that I used, and my instructions on how to do this. If you want more details, head over to KREATIVE KABOODLES BLOG tomorrow for more in depth description.

You need the image you are going to stamp, white or cream cardstock, versamark pad, versamark pen, embossing powders and heat gun.

To begin, ink up your cardstock with versamark pad, approximately the size of the image you are using. Then, sprinkly embossing powders onto the area...making a pattern you like for the background. Heat with heat gun until melted.

Ink up your image with a versamark pad, and stamp onto the embossed area you just made. Sprinkle with a dark embossing powder, tap off excess, and heat with embossing gun. Your image will now be visible on the background!

This image is now ready to be placed on a card!
