Fun Friday - Geared Up Garage #148590 & #151812


Until Sunday, June 7th, purchase the "Geared Up Garage Stamp Set" (#148590) and "Garage Gears Dies" (#151812) or place a $75+ with me, and I will send you a 
FREE 6x6 sampler pack of the "In Good Taste" DSP!





Today's Technique...
Today we are playing around with embossing powder.  Check how I make the gear die look metallic and see how I use it to make a stamped impression.


Today's Video...

The Cards...

Card 1
I decided to make the gear dies look metallic by using both gold and silver embossing powders.  I also rubbed on some Mossy Meadow ink with a dauber.  What do you think?

Card 2
For this card, I decided to try out a new technique that I haven't tried before.  I put layers of embossing powder and on the final layer, I press the stamp into the gooey embossing powder.  It makes a stamped impression in the embossing powder.  I ran over top of the image with Stazon Black ink and a dauber, and wiped off the excess.
