Hello there everyone and happy Friday! It’s Lydia here with you. Today I’ll be sharing how you can create great effects by layering with Embossing Ink and mica powders using the Just For You Stamp Set.
To start I took a piece of Jet Black Cardstock, you can use whatever color you like but I do love the effect on dark card. I then stamped the base layer of the roses using Embossing Ink and added over my lightest pink mica powder. The mica powder will stick to the sticky embossing ink. I used a really soft brush with a light hand. I also found that an air pump tool blows the mica powder away really well.
Once the first layer was done, I stamped over the second layer, again with Embossing Ink, this removes the mica powder it touches and leaves this nice and sticky to add a darker color of mica powder. Do the third and fourth layers in the same way, by stamping the layer into place using Embossing Ink and adding over a darker mica powder. I did the same for the leaves, this time using green mica powders.
Once I was happy with the stamping, I then created a simple sentiment banner by stamping a sentiment from Thank You Builder Stamp Set onto some Jet Black Cardstock using Embossing Ink and heat set it using Pure White Embossing Powder. I matted this onto a piece of patterned paper from Essentials Black & White 6×6 Paper Pack to add a fun contrast.
