Technique: Embossing with Classic Inks

Here is my first tutorial: Embossing with Classic Inks

1) First step is to ink your stamp up with Versamark ink. Then before stamping add colour onto the stamp using a classic ink pad. Start with your lightest colour first if you are going for a multi-coloured image like mine and then build up to the darkest colour.

2) Make sure to use your embossing buddy on your piece of card stock before stamping. This will get rid of any static cling on the paper so that your embossing powder will not stick in places you do not want it too.

3) After stamping your image onto card stock, cover with clear embossing powder and heat set.

4) Cut out your image and design your card. Today's inspiration came from: WICKED October 2010 WKD1010A Demonstrator Challenge, Workshop Wow WW176 Demonstrator Challenge and Card Sketch Challenge SC298 all from Splitcoaststampers. (Note: You have to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and logged in to SCS to view the Demo Challenges.)
