Technique Tuesday 2-3-09

I’ve been doing a Stampin’ Bootcamp the last couple of weeks and each we she gives us a Stampin’ Task.  Last week our task was to try out a new technique.  I was excited for this task because I had just seen this technique at Janice’s meeting and I was anxious to give it a try.

I don’t know if the technique has a name or not.  Janice saw it at Stampin’ Up! regional  in Orlando.  This technique is embossing the flowers from the pretties kit.  I was told that they used a blender pen and just got the flower wet.  But I found I couldn’t keep it wet long enough to keep the powder on when I would heat it.  So I did it the way the I learned at our meeting.

you-rockIt’s really pretty easy all I did was ink up the flower by pressing it into a VersaMark pad.  Then I sprinkled on the embossing powder and heated it up.  The sample I had seen was done with the black embossing powder, but I wanted to try some different stuff.  I also used iridescent ice on one flower. 

I also wanted to try it with color.  I pressed the flower into the regal rose craft pad.  Then I covered it with iridescent ice on the flower.  I actually used all three flowers on my card.  I really loved how it turned out.  I think it would make a great card for a teenager.
