{Spotlight Project} Vicki Creates a Triple Embossed Tile Card

Hi, everyone! Vicki here. Gosh, it seems like forever since I have had a project for you all. Today I will show you how to make a triple embossed tile.

Here is the finish card:

Start by taping down your stencil [I used the new ARTplorations Hearts All Over stencil] and sponging on a light color.

Using a darker color, sponge on color partially [bottom of hearts] to add depth to the image.

Using an inchie/twinchie type image [I used Boxed Blooms], stamp and color it.

Now comes the fun part. Emboss your image with clear powder 3 times, letting it dry before adding additional layers. Yes, you can use a Versamark ink, I just happen to have a dauber embossing ink bottle.

Trim up the "tile".

By the time you have 3 layers, your inchie will resemble a tile. [It is hard to catch it on camera, but it looks awesome in real life.]

Adhere all components onto card base and your triple embossed tile card is done. Since I won't be home for Valentine's Day, I will be mailing this to my hubby. I think he will love it!

See you in a couple of weeks!
