Embossing Tutorial

Hi Everyone! I am so excited to be this month's guest designer over at 3 Scrappy Boys.

I have a tutorial on embossing to share wit you using theMay Kit and Gel-a-tins SCENTED embossing powders. YUM!!!! I love techniques and embossing stuff is no exception.

I used it on two layouts from the May kit (full of tons of BG :) with the fun Maya Road chipboard pieces. Here is the one from my previous post.

And here is another one:

and a close up of the technique:

Start by using your chipboard and Versamark. Again, I am using Gel-a-tins SCENTED powder. It is delicious! I like this color yellow, too. It is very opaque.

Cover generously with embossing powder.

And begin to heat it with your heat gun.

Now start adding layers of embossing powder.

I find the best way to do this is to dip it back into the powder while the chipboard is still warm. This way the powder will stick to it.

Keep repeating until you get the layered look you are looking for. I like might nice and thick.

Then splatter painting it is fun, too! or you can leave it as is.

Scented embossing powder? I've never seen that!!! I hope it smells good. I love this technique. I keep thinking I need to get the paint out and do some splattering one of these days. Now I have more incentive. :)
