VersaMark Techniques: Heat Embossing

I stamped the background images with ink and swiped them with an embossing buddy. Then, I stamped the outline images with VersaMark. Cover with Gold Embossing Powder and shake off the excess before heating with a heat tool. When cooled, colour the berries and the pine cone with a marker.

I also used VersaMark and Gold Embossing Powder to change the Flourish Designer Frames from silver to gold.
-press the right side of the frame against the VersaMark pad
-lift the frame with tweezers, don't touch the edges
-cover the frame with embossing powder and shake off the excess
-heat with a heat tool to melt the embossing powder
-the frame will be very hot so let it cool completely
-handle it gently
