Did you know that you could mix embossing powders together for a custom colour?
Did you know that you can colour your white and clear embossing powders?
Embossing is one of my favourite techniques – it is always magical and looks amazing. Today I am sharing a quick favourite of how to spice up your plain embossed projects.
Inspired by colour of the year 2017
I like to mix my own colours of embossing powders and to create a custom look. So that’s what I did while being inspired by the green trend of the colour of the year 2017
step 1 – Add a single drop of All Purpose Ink into some white embossing powder.
step 2 – Mix the colour well into the powder and leave to dry overnight.
Sprinkle of this green embossing powder directly onto your project while still damp. Then heat the clumps of wet embossing powder to melt into puddles on your project for a fun look.
step 3 – Grab some additional green embossing powders. I was inspired by the image (trend swatch) to find my embossing powder colours.
step 4 – Add small amount s of all the colours of powders together in a tub.
step 5 – Mix the colours together really well. Use a container that can close and shake it up to mix.
step 6 – Stamp your image onto white cardstock using VersaMark ink.
step 7 – Sprinkle with embossing powder, shake off the extras and heat set using your heat gun.
step 8 – Add some plain embossed circles and some mixed embossed circles together on your next project.
I added a variety of embossed circles onto an art journal page.
