Embossing Powder Techniques #13

Rainbow Embossing Powder

You can use different colours of EP on one image to create a rainbow effect.

I used Smooch Spritz to emphasize the "fairytale" theme.

On this blog, I usually use Stampin' Up! products exclusively for my samples, so I'm confined to a small selection of EP colours.

Do try this with more than 2 colours!

Swipe the card stock with an Embossing Buddy to keep stray specks of EP to a minimum.

Stamp an image with a VersaMark pad. Hold the card stock at an angle and pour a colour of EP on a section of the image. Tip the card stock to pour off the excess powder. Turn the card stock and add EP to another section of the image and remove the excess powder.

Once the EP has adhered to a section of the image, it will resist any more powder so you can safely add another colour by overlapping the application. Pour off the excess powder. Check for stray specks of EP and remove with a fine paint brush.

Use the heat tool to melt the powders and let cool.

I really appreciate your blog and your sharing of techniques. I'm trying to do this more myself. I just loved this card.
