VersaMark Swipe Technique

This technique was demonstrated at Leadership 2013 in Orlando, Florida. It is a bold technique that really shows off our Stampin’ Up! Beautiful embossing powders.

VersaMark Swipe Technique. What you need:

3 Embossing Powders
Silicone Pad
Heat Gun     
Begin by using a dark card stock, black works well, but you can use other dark colors, too.  It’s good to experiment.

Swipe the end of your VersaMark and move it quickly across your card (or other project).  Swipe one area or color at a time.  Then heat emboss that area before moving on to your next color.
Here you can see I’ve embossed the Tempting Turquoise and have done the second swipe of VersaMark.

Now, I’ve heat embossed 2 swipes and have inked the 3rd with my VersaMark Pad.

Here is my finished card:
