Have you noticed how unique our two toned embossing powders are? Not only are they two toned, but they shimmer too!!!! Today we are going to share with your this quick and easy resist technique, where our embossing powders’s shimmer will be the star. Hope you enjoy!
1. Choose your favorite colors of embossing powders (Our designer Athanasia Papantoniou used Queen Sheba’s Silver, Twilight Bronze Slate and Madonna Robe Blue Gold) and use them with stamps. After melting you will have this beautiful shiny result.
2. Apply a small amount gesso, all over your page, and wipe it off the embossed image with a baby wipe. The shimmer and shine will shine through once again.
3. Use your favorite colors of sprays here and there (Athanasia used I’m Late, I’m Late Slate, Steel Shimmer, Clam Bake Beige, Pirate’s Plunder Gold, Screamin’ Banshee Black, Frozen Jack Frost). If you get spray on top of the embossing, wipe it up before heat drying it. It will make sure your shimmering image shows through on your project, and is not altered by the spray.
4. Glue your preffered chipboard pieces and/or embellishments. 5. Spray again with the color sprays in order to incorporate the chipboard pieces into the background. Add stamped images in the background with white ink for more texture.6. Make some splashes with the gesso or white color spray. I used them both.7. At this point, before the gesso or white spray dries, you can go ahead and wipe the embossed image off again with a damp baby wipe, to keep the shimmering images coming through, and popping from your background. You have the option to not wipe to mute the images a bit as well. It all depends on what look you prefer. Add your tittle, and your project is ready!
Hope you enjoy seeing the beautiful shimmer in our two toned embossing powders, come through in your projects when you try this technique!
Until next time!
