Iridescent Ice Dasher

366 I am using embossing techniques for my club this month and one way to use embossing powder is to highlight an area to make it shine. I versamarked the cardstock after I stamped Dasher in Mellow Moss ink. Then I covered the entire piece of cardstock with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heat set it. The small snowflake at the top is made to shine by using the versamark pen to just parts of the snowflake and then adding the embossing powder and heat setting it. Thanks for stopping by…..

Emboss Resist Snowflakes

364 Trying out the emboss resist technique for my club project. It is very simple. All you need to do is versamark the snowflakes on the whisper white cardstock and the emboss it with any color powder. I used clear since I wanted the white to show through for the flakes. Then you simply add another color over the top of the embossing powder. I used a sponge loading with Brocade Blue and sponged all over it and then used a tissue to remove the ink from the embossed areas.
