Everyone is sharing their favorite technique this week on Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog. How do I choose just one! I enjoy learning new techniques and applying them often to various projects.
I absolutely love that we can create our own background papers with any of the stamps that Close To My Heart offers. I combined my love of background stamping with another favorite, embossing! Wet embossing is such an easy technique, because the product basically does all the work for you.
I stamped a flourish stamp on some Kraft cardstock with VersaMark ink. You can see that it stayed really wet on the Kraft paper so I was able to see where I needed to apply the black embossing powder.
Once it was all covered in embossing powder I simply heated it and watched it become shiny. Imagine this look on a larger scale in your home!
