Technique Tuesday - Emerging Color

I'm finally getting back to my Technique Tuesdays, I know it's been a few weeks. This week I will be showing how to do emerging color. The pictures are not how I usually set it up since I've had a few issues with blogger but it works.

First you will need to stamp randomly on your base image (works best on glossy cardstock), using a variety of color. Try to fill in as much space as possible.Then take a stamp that is larger and ink it up with versamark and stamp to one side of the cardstock. In the picture you can see a slightly different color where I stamped my versamark image.

Then you will cover it with clear embossing powder and shake off the excess. Then heat it with your heat gun.

Take your brayer or sponge (sponging will take longer) and ink it up with a darker color and run it over your entire piece of cardstock until you have covered it all evenly. You should not be able to see any of the stamping you did except for where you embossed.

Take a kleenex and wipe of the extra ink that is on the embossed image.

Your base should look like this.

I'll share with you my final card tomorrow. Hope you liked and found the tutorial helpful. Happy Stamping!!
