Faux Metal Embossing

I am so excited to share this new technique!! It looks like metal and you get to create your own tags or embellishments.

It's fairly easy to do. Here are the items I used...
  • SU! Heat Tool
  • Copper Emboss Powder
  • Powder Pals
  • Whisper White Paper

Step 1: Take the paper and rub it on the VersaMark Pad. Enough to fit your image or a little more.Step 2:

Sprinkle the embossing power over the damp veramark paper. Tip off the extra. (put the lid of the powder, you'll see why in a little bit.

Step 3:
Get the gun! Heat the embossed paper. You'll see the powder start to melt. Extra powder will start to fly!

Step 4: After a couple of seconds..when warm/cool -redip and rub the paper into the versamark. Repeat 3-4 times depending on the depth you would like.
Step 5:

While the paper is still hot- Stamp onto the paper.

I couldn't get any good pictures of the ones I did. But if you look at picture 1 in the lower right corner you can see one.
