November Technique at Club Scrap

I have a new Technique Challenge every month.
This time I choose for: Embossing powder.
It is the month everyone is starting to male
Holiday cards and you do need your glittery
embossing powders.

But.......
there are more things you can do
with embossing powder.

Inspired on the colors of Autumn
I used the Club Scrap Comfort Zone
leave stamps and tree colors of embossing powder.

When you have stamped your image with a
embossing ink, make sure your empossing powders are
ready to use and you have the paper for the excess
also at hand.

Make sure you do not mix the powders up! (I speak
from experience!!LOL)

Tap a little of the first color on the outside of your
image and tap excess of. Make sure it
does not fall over the rest of your image.
It takes a little thinking before on were to start.
With this cirle stamp I did it bit by bit
on the ouside. Next color on top of the first
and a little more of the stamp.
And the last color in the middle.
Now heat it with your heat gun.

If by accident you mixed your colors,
use a new pot to put them in, for stamping with
and embossing with mixed colors is also
a great use of your embossing powders.

On http://www.youtube.com/ you find some
real neat video's with instructions.
Just type wmbossing powder in the
search box.
