When heat embossing over a larger surface area, it doesn’t necessarily leave a smooth finish, even when you are using VersaMark, the best ink for embossing. However, by double embossing, you can achieve a nice shiny smooth surface! However, you can take it too far and start to blur your lines. By mixing double embossing with irRESISTible Pico Embellisher, you can get the best of both worlds! Filling in an embossed area with a Pico Embellisher is super easy because it creates an excellent barrier. While our example is a bit nerdy- you can apply this technique to so many other projects!
For this project, we used from Imagine: VersaMark, Black Embossing Powder and irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Shimmer. We also used white cardstock, a stamp press, a heat tool, and The Sweet Stamp Shop’s Spectacle stamp. If you don’t have a stamp press, using a VersaMarker would work too!
