I am totally hooked on the sophisticated, modern metallic look that has been trending this season! Combined with this drop-shadow heat embossing technique, the overall finish is a beautiful luxe effect.
When you watch today's video, be sure to note a few things I mention:
If you're going to use a stamp positioner for this technique, try stamping onto the image plate with a color that will provide good contrast; it's much easier to see when you are determining where to position the second impression.
Use a quick-drying dye ink for the initial impression, and prep over that surface with an anti-static pouch or powder tool, prior to stamping with the Versamark ink; it will help avoid unwanted stray embossing powder.
Try experimenting with different combinations of dye ink and embossing powders, as well as different colors of paper, just to see what the end-result will be! It's a great way to achieve an almost 3D effect.
