General Techniques

Molten Pearls

 See also the Embedded Embossing technique for another version

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 or 3 Cosmic Embossing Powders (1 light color & 1 or 2 dark colors)
  • Versamark Pad
  • Heat Gun
  • X-Static bag
  • White cardstock
  • Stamp of your choice

Directions:

  1. Using your Versamark Pad as a stamp, stamp a rectangle on your white cardstock.
  2. Sprinkle on the light color embossing powder and heat.
  3. Immediatley after heating dump on a second coat of embossing powder and heat again.  (if you didn't get a good coverage heat a section again and immediatley dump on more ep)
  4. You can stop there, or add a third layer of embossing powder to get a thicker foundation.
  5. Use the X-Static bag and generously rub over the embossed rectangle.
  6. Ink your stamp with Versamark and stamp on embossed rectangle.  Sprinkle with dark embossing powder.  Heat just enough to melt the powder into the layer.  Do not over heat or the powders will start to bleed.
  7. Trim your rectangle and mount on a piece of cardstock.

Alternative Directions

  1. 1.  If you aren't able to work fast enough with the hot embossing powder you can always just stamp the Versamark Pad again on the first layer then sprinkle and heat.  But be sure if you use this method that you put a very good coating of the X-Static bag on the last layer before you stamp your image, because there is alot of Versamark in the layers and it tends to be alittle more sticky.

Note:  Try adding a background stamp with a medium color and then another stamp on top with a darker color.

Instead of trimming the final piece into a rectangle use a punch and make different shapes.
