Technique Tuesday

Today's technique is Pastel Embossing. This technique combines embossing and chalk pastels. It's pretty easy to do.

Ink stamp in VersaMark and stamp onto the cardstock. Pour white embossing powder over the stamped image and heat the image with a heat tool until fully melted. Once the image has cooled, use a blender pen to pick up the desired pastel colors. Apply directly to the embossed image. It’s best to start with the lightest color and work to the darkest. It’s easy to add more color and depth this way. Continue adding colors until you reach your desired look. Let the cardstock dry a few minutes before handling. Apply to card and finish card. Not much to it at all!

Happy stamping!!
