- Heat gun
- Clear slow-drying ink (I used Versamark)
- Clear embossing powder (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel [UTEE] is preferred)
- Tim Holtz Distress Ink
- Ink Blending Tool - in a pinch you can use makeup sponges, but they disintegrate quickly
- A stamped and colored image of your choice (I used a vintage St. Patrick's Day image)
- Optional is a containment tray and a heat-proof mat. If you don't have these, simply use one sheet of printer paper as a base for sprinkling embossing powder, and a separate page with slightly turned-up edges to capture fly-away embossing powder while you use the heat gun.
Step 2: Press your image into the Versamark ink to cover completely and then sprinkle a healthy layer of embossing enamel all over.
