Sweets for the Sweet Flowers


Have you noticed  that there are some new Textured Impressions Embossing Folders( TIEF)  in the new catalog?  I think TIEF are fantastic and add so much with so little effort.  I just received the Stripes TIEF and wanted to try the double embossing technique.  I brayered  VersaMark ink directly  on one side of  the  TIEF and then placed the cardstock in the folder and ran it through the Big Shot.  I sprinkled on some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heated it with the heat gun.  Iridescent Ice embossing powder is clear embossing powder with Dazzling Diamonds glitter mixed in. 

Pink stripe

What do you think?  It is hard to see the shine and glitter from the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder in this picture.  I love how it looks and will be using this technique again soon.
