Tutorial by Jacquie Heffner (AfterHoursStamper.com)Have you ever wanted to make a glitter embellishment that seemed to come alive?Well, if you said yes, this tutorial will show you how to make some of the mostamazing, glittery and translucent embellishments you have ever seen. Are youready? Then follow the directions below.Supplies:
* Versafine ink pad (or any ink pad of yourchoice, justmake sure the ink will stay wet long enoughfor you toemboss)* Rubber stamp (should have lots of emptyspace)* Glitter (I used DecoArt Glamour Dust, greatglitter)* Heat gun for embossing* Clear embossing powder* Transparency (I used the one for copiers)* Sakura Glaze Pens, various colors* Toothpicks for blendingStep by Step Directions:STEP 1: Stamp your image onto the transparency, pour clearembossing powder on image, and carefully use yourheat gun to set the powder. (you can use aembossing buddy on the transparency before youstamp your image which will keep stray embossingpowder from sticking to your transparency.)NOTE: Some transparencies do not take heat well,mine don't so I have to hold the heat gun a bitfarther away from the transparency, and then keepthe heat gun moving and at the same time pullingthe heat gun away from the transparency to preventthe transparency from melting. Be careful and youwill be fine.Line up your Glaze pens, have a toothpick ready to use for blending.
