This is Lucy Newton with my first Photo Tutorial for A Blog Named Hero Yey!!! This is a technique I saw somewhere in the web. And I think is versatile and fun, it's about white embossing on black cardstock and then coloring the images with markers. Sounds like fun? It is, so let`s begin shall we?
For this technique you will need:
- Black cardstock,
- A HA Stamp,
- Embossing Ink Pad,
- White embossing powder,
- Heat Gun,
- A tray or a piece of paper to catch your embossing powder ,
- Markers: you can use copics, or any other kind you have on hand and
- A craft sheet ( not necessary, but suggested, it's great for working with inks, heat gun and helps keep your place clean)
|1) Ink your stamp with the embossing ink.|
2) Stamp it on the black cardstock.
|3) Do this several times, turning the image, so you get a nice and varied background.|
|4) Put the cardstock over your tray or piece of paper.|
|5)Pour your embossing powder over your stamped cardstock.|
|6) Give the cardstock a few little pats on the back, so the excess of embossing powder falls into the tray or the paper.|
|7) Pour the remaining embossing powder into its container and set aside|
|8) With a fine tip brush take away any excess of embossing powder (outside the lines of the stamped image)|
|9)Heat the embossed stamped images with the heat gun until it melts the powder. Be careful to not burn yourself or the cardstock, to avoid the last, keep moving the heat gun so it does not stay on the same spot for long. Let dry completely.|
|11)Then I continued with an orange copic YR04 and colored the next set of ferns. Then a yellow copic Y15 for the next one.|
|12) Finish with a red or wine marker, I first tried the Marvy Uchida Le Plume II in plum but it was too light for me, so I ended up using another copic, a red one R29.|
|13) Now to finish off the card I inked the ferns with brown ink.|
|14) And stamped it in a white cardstock square. Then I matted it in orange cardstock.|
|15)I stamped the sentiment with black ink on a strip of white cardstock, cut the ends into a banner shape and inked the border with brown ink.|
Here are the products you'll need to try this fun technique!
