Embedded Image

Thanks to all of you who participated in last month's challenge!  The winners of January's challenge will be announced on the 15th of February, so stay tuned!

ALSO: Stay tuned for an announcement 
later this month about our new Crew members!

February's Top Winner will receive 3 digital sentiments made by yours truly, and each stamper who's card is showcased will receive 1 digital sentiment made by yours truly! ;)  Here's the best part--THE WINNERS get to choose what they want their sentiment to say and what style!  If this doesn't sound like something you'd like, you could choose from some sentiments that I already have made. :)  More details will be forthcoming after winners are announced. 

With all that taken care of, let's get to it! We've got another fabulous challenge for you this month at Technique Time Tuesday--it's called Embedded Image!!!  We cannot wait to see what amazing creations you create with this tutorial!  PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CREATION USES OUR TUTORIAL OR YOUR ENTRY WILL BE DELETED.  If you need to review the rules, please consult the tab up top!

One last disclaimer--I apologize that my watermark still has our old name on it...I will be using the new name on next month's tutorial but I finished this one before I made that watermark and can't redo the photos--sorry!

Embedded Image

 Materials Needed

*Patterned/card cut in desired shape
*Versamark Pad
*Clear Embossing Powder
*Colored Embossing Powder
*Heat Tool
*Solid image to stamp (could use line images, solids look better)
*Embellishments, etc., to finish project

"How To"

1. Take the piece of paper you want to use as your embedded panel.  Cover it heavily with Versamark ink.  Coat it with clear embossing powder and heat.

2. Repeat step one 2-3 more times until desired thickness and shine is achieved.

3. Ink up your solid image with Versamark.  Stamp directly onto your clear embossed paper.  Cover with colored embossing powder and heat.

4. Add your completed embedded image to your project!
