VersaMagic Background & Double Embossing
Creating texture is part of my style and I can’t resist the possibility of using or mixing different kinds of inks. In today’s project I will show you how to use VersaMagic to create a shy background. I describe it as shy because it is very clear and timid, and then you make your design pop with a double embossing technique and Brilliance Ink.
Cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock of 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and randomly ink with the DewDrop Inkpad of VersaMagic using different colors. In my sample I used the Four Corners Collection that includes the colors Sahara Sand, Niagara Mist, Wheat and Sage.
Take a background stamp and ink completely using Brilliance Ink. Stamp this image over the inked background. Brilliance is a fast-drying pigment ink that you can use to create a very special texture. In my sample I used the DewDrop Inkpad in Sunflower Yellow.
Immediately cover the entire surface with clear embossing powder and melt with the heat tool.
Take this embossed piece and pass with an embossing folder of your choice through the big shot to enhance the design.
Take a piece of vellum card stock 4 1/4″ long and using VersaMark stamp your sentiment on the right side. Cover the stamped sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder and melt with the heat tool.
The size of the card base is 4 1/4 x 11″; score at 5 1/2″. Paste the sentiment over the decorated layer and finalize your decoration with a die cut or any other embellishment. And finally using Tear It! adhesive tape, paste the entire layer over the Very Vanilla card base.
