Highlighting Technique

     I  LOVE  techniques!!!!  I love to find new ways to use all my Stampin' Up! products.  So what is a girl to do?  Get on the Internet, Pinterest, and blogs, and find new and exciting techniques to try.

Here's a new one for you to try: the Highlighting technique

     I found this technique from Gina K.  It's so simple to do and it's such a huge WOW!  Everyone loves it!


Pick a light colored card stock.  Rub your Embossing Buddy over the entire piece of card stock.  Stamp your image in Versa Mark ink.  Use white or black embossing powder and heat emboss your images.

Use a marker or a Blender Pen and ink pad in a dark color than your card stock.  Color in the open areas of your embossed images.

**NOTE**  I used a Blender Pen and ink pad - this way I could control the intensity of the color inside my butterflies.

     I hope you give this technique a try.  It was so much fun to make this card.  Of course the picture does not do it justice.  It's so pretty in person!


CARD STOCK:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White, & Pink Pirouette

INKS:  Versa Mark, Blushing Bride, & Strawberry Slush

STAMPS:  Best of Butterflies & Express Yourself

TOOLS:  3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim in Strawberry Slush, White Embossing powder, Heat Tool, Blender Pen, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Stamping Sponges, & Dimensionals
