Thursday Technique Time

Well here is the 1st Thursday Technique of the new year. I have to admit that I did get this Technique from another blog, its from http://www.butternutsagetutorials.blogspot.com/ . She calls it frosting. Its super cool and super easy. So with out further rambling here is the Technique. This is what you will need:
Flour
Salt
Reinker (i used orchid opulence)
Embossing Gun
Dauber or 1/2 teaspoon
small container
White Cardstock





Step 1: Measure out Flour using either the dauber or 1/2 teaspoon and put that in the small container and then do the same to the salt.


Step 2: Add a little bit of water to salt & flour mixture. Once you add the water stir using either the end of a paintbrush or a toothpick.


You don't want to add to much water because you want the mixture to come out like a thick Elmer's glue.
Step 3: Add 2 drops of color using your reinker to the mixture.

Stir until you get all the color mixed.


Step 4: Using a paintbrush ( a small one) take a small amount of the mixture and place it in the middle of your image and brush it out towards the end.


Continue until you have your desired image filled with the mixture.



Step 5: The fun part. Take your embossing gun and heat the image until it starts to bubble and rise. You can kind of tell in this picture as I'm heating it where its starting to rise and get a little lighter.
This is what it will look like when its finished heating.




Isn't that so cool.
Step 6: Finish Card. This card I made was for my SIL's b-day. I used a lighter reinker for this card then I used in the Technique.
I hope you enjoyed this Technique and if you need better instructions or would like to see the original Technique in video form go to the link above. Hope you all have a wonderful evening. Until my next rambling :)
