Embossing Powder Techniques #3

Mosaic

Embossing powder can be used as "grout" to imitate tile or tesserae on paper crafts.

The bubbles on the page are Vellum card stock. I just can't stop finding uses for vellum!













I adhered Sticky Page to a white card stock mat and arranged squares of card stock for tiles. Cover with White embossing powder and shake off the excess powder. Only the powder between the squares will remain. Melt the powder with a heat tool.

Next, I stamped on some of the squares and applied a VersaMark pad to the surface. Cover with Clear embossing powder, shake off the excess and melt the powder.

For this card I stamped and coloured white card stock with images that reminded me of blue and white china and cut them into shards.

Adhere Sticky Page to a white card stock mat and arrange the shards on the top sticky side. Add white embossing powder, shake off the excess and melt the powder between the tesserae with a heat tool. Let cool.

Apply VersaMark pad to the entire design and cover with clear embossing powder, shake off the excess and melt with heat tool.
