VersaMark Techniques: Heat and Stick Glitter

VersaMark is a thick, clear medium with many uses. Stampin' Up! offers it in a pad and a refill bottle. You can also find it elsewhere in a marker, but I squeezed some from the bottle and used a dried-up blender pen to apply it to my image. I found I could apply it thicker and increase the open time, too.

Heat and Stick powder adheres to VersaMark. Then, when it's heated you can cover it with glitter and heat emboss again to hold the glitter.

-stamp the image and swipe it with an Embossing Buddy
 -squeeze some VersaMark into a lid and apply to the image with a dried-up blender pen
-pour Heat and Stick powder over the image and shake off the excess
-use your Heat Tool to melt the powder
-pour Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the image and shake off the excess
-use a small paint brush to remove any stray glitter
-use your Heat Tool to melt the powder again to hold the glitter
