Emerging Colour

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a technique I demonstrated at my Customer Thank You Party. It is something that works really will with the glossy cardstock although the sample below was made with Whisper White card.

I started by stamping images from Artistic Etchings onto the white card. Next I inked up the Medallion background stamp with Versamark ink and stamped over the top of the coloured imanges.

I covered the card in Clear Embossing Powder and heat set the Medallion image. 


Next I applied Chocolate Chip ink with a brayer over the whole white card, wiping the excess off the embossed area with a tissue - and hey presto! - the Artistic Etchings images show through where the clear Medallion.

I enjoyed showing this technique - is it something you have tried?
