I’m back for this week’s edition of Stampendous! Saturday! This week I am trying something quite a bit different for me, and I’m still playing with the techniques, so I’ll show you lots more of this in the future!
Our latest Stampendous! catalog was all about Fran’tage! And while demoing at CHA this July Fran stumbled upon a fun new complimentary technique which she’s calling The Encrusted Jewel Technique.
Here’s my whole card and its really hard to see all the sparkly gorgeousness going on so I have a couple of close ups for you too! I stamped the Eiffel Tower from the Perfectly Clear Eiffel Tower stamp set in Versamark Ink on a pattern paper then embossed it with the new Aged Silver Embossing Enamel. Around the edges I added some of the smaller stamps from the set stamped in Bisque Dew Drop ink. I added some Aged Gold Embossing Enamel to only parts of the images and then heated them Now part of that lovely champagne color shows through as well.
Along the bottom of the card I stamped one of the gorgeous Jumbo Cling Romantic Border and embossed that with Chunky White Deep Impression powder. Before its heated though you want to add small bits of your other “pretties”. I used Pearlized Mica Fragments, Champagne Crushed Glass Glitter, and Silver Crushed Glass Glitter.
I'm linking to the NEW Encrusted Jewel Technique video on YouTube so you can check it out :)
