Tinted Opaques technique

This was another fun and easy technique. All you need is dark cardstock, white pigment ink, markers to color your image, clear embossing powder, heat tool and a bold image stamp! Those are all pretty basic suppies that I'd bet most everyone has. You just stamp your image with the white pigment ink. Then, add the clear embossing powder and heat it. Then, use your markers to cover over the embossing powder. The color will bead on top of the embossing powder. Reheat with the color on top of the embossing powder. Color again (and again) until you get the color you like. The only thing is you have to color small areas and then heat set and then go back again with the same color if needed. After you get the color you want on that one area then move on to the next color. Heat set after each color. That's it! Takes a little time with all the "color, heat set, color, heat set...." but it's not too bad! Here are the products I used to make this card.
