It's time we had this again. Mr Green Each week, I (or somebody) will post a technique for you to try if you want to. It may be something old that's not been done for ages, or it may be something new for you to try.

If any of you have a technique, please feel free to post in this thread and we'll all have a go.

So, I'll start with something I did recently and you can all have a try if you want to.

HEAT EMBOSSING DRY EMBOSSING

So, you obviously need a dry embossed piece. If you have a Cuttlebug, brilliant, if you haven't, use a stencil and embossing tool.

Colour your card using your inks, paints, pencils...whatever you want to use. You may colour your card before embossing, or even emboss a bought coloured piece of card. If you have distress inks, they work brilliantly for this.

When your card is coloured, very, VERY gently swipe across the surface with your Versamark pad. You only want the ink on the raised part of the design. Add your chosen embossing powder, brush/shake off any excess and then heat.

That's it. Mr Green Have a go, it gives a super finish and makes terrific backgrounds.

Hmmmm, Heat Embossing on Dry Embossing. Staff_lighten-1 actually, I think I'll do a new forum for this. Each technique can have its own thread and then, if any of you have a go, you can post your work in the relevant thread. Mr Green

Well presumably (and I hardly dare raise this bit!!) you put some embossing powder on after you have Versamarked it, eh? I have just given it a go with the lovely clamshell embossing folder and it looks ace!

Ooops Thanks, Patty. I've amended my first post...I suppose it would be a bit difficult to shake off the Versamark, eh? Laughing Hard

Don't forget to show us what you've done. Mr Green

Well, it isnt as good as Lorraines but Ive managed it. I can see now that i needed to be more careful with the versamark.

I have loved this technique and although I know how to do both things seperately, I had never thought of combining them like this. Thanks so much Lorraine, your pedestal just got a little bit higher.

Oooh, well done, Maria. clap Nice job, hun. I like that. Mr Green

One little tip, girls. If you ink your card, make sure it is totally DRY before doing the heat embossing bit. That way, you'll get less stray powder sticking to it.

if you use one of those little french chalk bags on it before using the emboss powder it helps with the stray bits . keeps the embossing nice and sharp

Well I did that on one of mine, but it lifted off the Versamark too! Still trying and yes Goaty, when I get a decent result I will put the piccy up!! Just don't hold your breath.

Well - for that earlier post that said "I will succeed" - read "I might have a go at succeeding" - some 8 pieces of card later (good job I am not easily frustrated by these things!) I have finally managed one that is at least reasonable, although it took ages to brush off the excess from round the little leaves.

This is "Leafy Branch" CB folder and Verdigris embossing powder.

Whilst doing this one, I did discover something else (it might even be a "technique") you can do. If you run a distress ink pad over the DEPRESSED inner side of the embossing folder, covering it completely, then put your white card in, then run it through the CB, when it comes out, the background is transferred from the colour and the embossing is all raised and white. It looked rather nice and the folder washed off clean with a baby wipe very easily. I would hesitate to use a permanent type of inkpad though!! My picture above was done this way, then I embossed all the leaves (or tried to!)

well worth the effort though - it looks super and I love that verdigris powder.

Im going to have another go later too. so are you saying ink the whole of one side of the folder and use white card? will try that too, i love all tips and techniques over here.

Excellent, Patty. clap It looks great with that verdigris.

Love your new technique too. Inking the folder...what a darned good idea. Mr Green Must try that and may try it with paint too. Idea

Teabag is on the case. She has just popped in to seive thru what is left of my brain after a busy day yesterday and an even busier and extremely noisy evening. Hubby's band was playing so i took Geri and mother in law to support them.

I was in bed dreaming and watching tv when teabag came in like a whirlwind. affraid not in the bedroom of course....

I went on the forum to see what she was talking about. she had seen the word verdigris and knew she recognised it..but couldn't place it. She knew as soon as i described it.

I love verdigris....for anyine who doesn't recall it..it is just a super mixture of green and gold and speckies of shades, it gives a look that reminds me of Copper domes on buildings where the weather has affected the metal.

So guess who has to pop down to teabag's later..we will have a concerted effort and a good play around with this technique.

Strangely Patty, i had seen the techinque of colouring the embossing folders done at the warehouse i go to to do my special craft shopping..they have super demo's where people have tried it all. she actually used watercolours too. if you did use stazon on the folder, you could use stazon cleaner to get it off. Even if you used a small cheaper one just to be sure.

Now the thing..can you use fimo on them????? i am sure i saw her do that too, but i think she used something on the folders so it came off easy.

Well I thought I would give what Patty suggested a try and was very pleased with the result.

then I went one further and discovered that on a regular design you can put it through once to get a colour like in the purple one here, then ink the undreside of the folder in a different colour and turn your piece over and it comes out bi- colour like the red and yellow one here. This is a breakthrough for me!
