This is a fun technique using heat embossing and ink. Stamp your image in VersaMark, heat enboss with black embossing powder and then color with markers or ink/sponge dauber. You can color just certain areas of the image or you can rub ink over the entire image. The ink will not "stick" to the embossed areas and it can be wiped off with a dry cloth. Give it a try and see what you come up with. Maybe even try several ink colors, what ever you do....just have fun.
This cute baby card was created using the new Photopolymer stamp set called "Designer Type" and the stamp set "Take Care". The Photopolymer stamps are truely clear stamps that use the same clear stamping blocks. If you want to see where and what you are stamping every time then these are the stamps for you! They can also be manupulated from a staight line to a curved line before stamping as in the "baby" banner on this card.
Here is what I did. I sponged to background clouds using a home made cloud template and then ran it through the clouds embossing folder. All the images were stamped on a seperate piece of paper, cut out and then added to the card front. It's hard to see all the details in the picture, but check out the little birdie coming out of the egg and the shiny eggs.

Well, when I saw this box of tissues, my first thought was that it looks just like a current Stampin'Up! stamp set and colors. I'm always amazed with how Stampin'Up! stays up with the current trends, even on tissue boxes! Anyway, when the box was empty, I set right to work making a card. Here is what I came up with:

What do you think? If I hadn't told you the secret you might think I stamped the background, right? Pretty cool, if I do say so myself and if I had to guess, you'll never look at a tissue box the same again!
