Embossing Powder Techniques #12

Faux Mosaic Resist

Previously, in Heat Embossing Techniques #3, I showed you a similar technique. This one is a lot faster to make, but first you have to make a Mosaic stamp. Here's how.

Stampin' Up! stamp sets are die cut when you receive them. After you mount your stamps, save the foam backed adhesive rubber to make a Mosaic stamp. Cut the flat rubber into "shards" and adhere them to a suitable block leaving some space between the pieces. Use this stamp to turn any image into a mosaic without cutting.

I stamped the rose on white card stock with Jet Black StazOn ink and used markers and a blender pen to colour the image. Let the inks dry completely; you can speed the drying with a Heat Tool.

Swipe the card stock with an Embossing Buddy and stamp your Mosaic stamp with a VersaMark pad. Apply Clear EP, shake off the excess and melt with a Heat Tool.

When the EP is cooled, swipe the piece with a black ink pad, NOT StazOn, working the ink into the "cracks". Then, clean the ink from the EP with a tissue.
