Spot Dot is such a cool stamp set. What a great idea. Its been fun experimenting with all the ways to use the images. With the Painting With Powder technique from Stampendous on my mind, I thought, why not layer embossing powders over the circles? I think the results were pretty cool. And the gradient look is so trendy right now.
I also embossed the sentiment with two color powders, and the frame in one color. (the frame was easily cut by hand) When I am going to emboss, my go-to ink is Tsukineko Versamark Watermark ink. It stays wet a long time, and when you are using several different images and several different powders, it helps. And since I began stamping, Stampendous powders have always been the embossing powders I use. They are the best. Especially the the detail powders. Detail powders allow you to emboss fine lines, without problem. Their powders heat up evenly and quickly. And with all the new colors out in coordinating kits, you are going to get addicted to this!
I think I will try and get a little video together to show you how easy this and a few other embossing techniques really are. Maybe this weekend, ok? (I am starting feel more settled in our new place, but keep your fingers crossed for its completion! :)) thanks for stopping by!
