So this weeks Challenge is:

'Wet Embossing'

This Challenge is quite easy, all you need to do is complete a Card / Project that follows the Theme.  It can be anything remember for example, Cards Scrapbook Layouts, Boxes, Bags, Tags, 3D Creations and maybe even Jewellery.

How to Wet Emboss
What I would like everyone to do was to heat emboss on the actual digi image!!! Sounds strange, I know because when we usually heat emboss we do it with a traditional rubber or clear stamp and an embossing ink pad or Versa Mark Ink pad. There are two ways that you can Heat emboss on a digi image, this is what I did with the card above. I used what is called a versamarker


This marker has the same ink in it that the Versamark Ink pad has. It is a sticky ink that embossing powder sticks to. It has two tips on it, a brush tip and a small tip. You simply color with it on the area that you want to emboss, in my case it was the black cat and I used Clear embossing powder. So, you color the area to be heat embossed, sprinkle on the embossing powder and heat set with a heat gun. Simple as that. 


Now, the other method of heat embossing is the same as if you used a stamped image, you would simply stamp a versamark ink pad directly on the entire image after you have colored it and cut it out, and then add your embossing powder, heat set with your heat tool, and you are finished. You can do this with 3 or 4 layers if you like, put it into the freezer to dry, then bend it little to create cracks and give it an antique look. Use Clear Embossing powder for this method as well.

The Prize

  2. What is wet embossing? I know about heat embossing and dry embossing, but never heard of wet embossing.

    Also, your word verification is terrible.
