I decided to do a little "wet" embossing.
That's a misnomer, it's not really wet!
Here's the steps you follow if you've never done it before:
1) Stamp your CTMH stamp onto a Versa Mark Pad. It is clear and acts like a type of sticky glue, and stamp the image onto your paper.
2) Sprinkle embossing powder over the image, then gently tip it so the extra falls off. You will see that it has only stuck to the stamped image.
Embossing powders come in all different colours and textures (ie. glitter) I chose to do white so I could add my own colour with ink after it is embossed.
3) Using a heating gun (tool) start to heat the image from about 8" away and you will see the powder start to melt. I guess this is what they would call the "wet" part, but it is still not wet because almost as soon as you heat it, it cools and becomes hard and shiny.
This is pretty much it! Easy huh!
Here's the finished product.
I will be adding the word "Mom" on a small white tag to the pink card to the left, and "Friend" to the card to the right.
