Embedded Image-Stampin' B's Design Team
The embedded image was a challenge recently on Splitcoaststampers. I did not do that challenge and didn't know what to expect but I think it turned out well. The instructions for this technique can be found on Holly McMillen's blog, Toy's Haven.
This is a summary of how to make the card:
Stamp a background image on light colored cardstock
Hold your VersaMark pad side down directly to paper. Go in one direction, turn
paper 90 degrees and go across again.
Apply a generous amount of clear embossing powder. Heat set.
Repeat steps 2 and 3. Repeat a third time. It makes a very shiny,
Ink your silhouette image and stamp on clear embossed piece.
Apply darker embossing powder. Heat set. The image embeds
into the background. That is fun to watch.
Cut or die cut the image and make your card or project.
