Technique Tuesday with Lucy Edson

Hi, Lucy here with an idea for using those mists in your stash. I love embossing and clear embossing powder will act as a resist to let your background paper show through when you mist over it. Let me show you what I mean. I made an accent on this card using this technique.

You will need the following supplies:
Paper
Stamp
Clear embossing powder
Embossing ink - I use a Versafine Watermark stamp pad
Stamp your image onto the background with Watermark ink and sprinkle with embossing powder.

Heat with a heat gun until clear and shiny.

When cool, spritz with your favorite mist. I used Shimmerz Spritz in Licorice. The mist will bead up over the embossed image. Let it sit for a minute.

Wipe mist off embossed area - here is the result. I love the glossy shine from the embossing contrasting with the shimmery mist.

A close-up of how I incorporated this technique into in this card from some of my Sassafras Lass scraps left over from the AMM September kit and a few little goodies from my stash.
Thanks, and hope this might make you take a different look at your stamps. See you soon!
