Here's another technique I was messing around with. I had to keep my voice down for this one. If you have a punch or the Tim Holtz die cut for these leaves it would be much easier but I had to do it the hard way. So to clarify becaue my babbling is a little misleading: 1st - Paint the Gesso on heavy cream colored card stock either stencil it on or just paint it on your die cut leaf. Let it dry. 2nd - Drops of alcohol ink on the Gesso. It's pretty cool how it spreads out and fills in the cracks. 3rd - Once the ink is dry, dap on clear embossing ink or whatever embossing ink you prefer. 4th - cover with clear embossing powder. I prefer not to use UTEE but you could if you wanted to. 5th - heat it with your heat tool and watch the magic with how the colors change and the alcholol ink bleeds and soaks into the embossing powder as it melts. The first version I did is much easier and I definitely prefer that technique but thought I would share this other option if you needed thicker leaves or some more texture in your leaves. Enjoy and thanks for watching. :o)
