A Quick Tuesday Tutorial

This is one of the most recent cards made at Cindyrae's Stamp Club. This is called an emerging color technique.

First you would stamp an image or your verse onto your card stock. We used Presto Patterns Specialty Paper. This DSP comes already embossed, and you can add the colors of your choice using sponges, spray bottles, etc.

Here I stamped Peace On Earth in Soft Suede. The next step is to stamp a larger image over the image you want to show through in Versamark ink and emboss using Clear Embossing Powder with your heat tool. Lastly you would cover your entire image in a contrasting ink color. I used the Silver Foil Smooch Spray liberally here, then rubbed in the color using a sponge. You could also use a brayer and ink pad instead of spray and a sponge, it's really up to you and the tools you have on hand.

Hope you enjoyed this card and directions today. Have a great day!
