Today's tutorial is a technique that has been around for some time.  I've been using this one for years with rubber stamps.  I think that it is always good to bring back old techniques as they can sometimes be pushed aside and forgotten.
Today rather than using rubber stamps I have used Impressabilities to create a textured background.



Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

10-1001E White
2-226E Rosey
2-220E Foxy

Spellbinders:

S4-329 Butterfly Circles
S4-320 Nested Butterflies 2

Other Materials Used:

Versamark Pad
Pearl-ex Powders
Organza Ribbon
Spray fixative

Instructions:

Step One:

Cut desired shape using your Spellbinder dies.


Step Two:

Place an Impressabilities on the base plate of your cutting machine.
Place the cut out shape on this.



Cover with the mat and top plate and run through your cutting machine.  You now have the embossed shape.


Very gently run the versamark pad over the shape.  Only apply slight pressure as you want the ink on the raised parts only.


Using a soft paint brush, cover the shape completely with Pearl-ex powder  Once again a soft touch is needed as you don't want to grind the powder into the paper.


Once the hape has been covered with the powder, rub over the entire shape with a tissue.  This will remove the powder from everywhere except the raised areas.


Spray with a fixative if desired.
