Tinted Opaque Technique Page

Here's a technique I'd never heard of before. I was on SplitCoastStampers last night and I saw this technique page done by user name reccabecca. It looked simple enough to figure out and the instructions were in focus enough to read. I read the instructions and then headed to my workroom to play it from memory and this is what I came up with!

Stamp your image on the dark colored card stock with white craft ink or Versa Mark. Cover with white embossing powder and heat it. The embossing powder will not be totally smooth. It will have dimples in it exposing the card stock. This is what you want. Color on the image areas with desired colors of markers (NOT permanent markers). Wipe off color on embossing, it will bead up. Heat set color, if color fades reapply color and reheat.

I like to emboss and I LOVE to sit down and just color so this technique brought to me two of the things I enjoy when stamping. I think this would make a very fun background and also cut up in pieces for layering!!! There's LOTS you can do with this technique!

This one goes in the new set of 20 technique pages and one set will be offered here as blog candy when the pack of 20 is finished. I believe this one is #4 out of 20. But it won't take long to get to 20 so hang in there!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

Wow, this is a really cool technique--can't wait to try it. I haven't seen it on SCS either; I'll have to stalk the gallery to see how it has been used on cards. TFS!

Great technique; thanks! It looks like an easy way to use many colors on embossed images w/o heat embossing over & over.
