Canadian

This is an awesome set to use for the technique challenge on SCS today! The moose is a silhouette yet isn't entirely solid so some of the color still seaps through the image.

Step by Step what I did:
On white paper stamp the moose and "Canadian" in versamark ink and emboss with detail powder. Spray with Butterscotch Adirondack color wash.
Stamp a second set of moose with versamark ink and emboss with powder (this will keep some of the moose the butterscotch color).
Iron with a piece of scrap paper over top to lift off the embossing powder.
Stamp the last few moose with coffee bean ink.


I wanted to show you this photo because once you lift off that embossing powder off the word "canadian" I stamped my "born and raised" in black overlapping the words a little. You wouldn't be able to do that if you left the embossing powder on your card (it would resist the black ink). I thought this was one of the very cool things about this technique.
