I used a triple embossing technique for this, if you haven't tried it before pull up a pew and I'll walk ya through!
I started with some 2"x2" squares by Magenta. These are very sturdy, you need to use something sturdy for triple embossing or it can break (or crumble in the post which I found out once!) The Stampman sell chipboard squares which are fab for this technique and more.
Colour your chipboard with a base colour of pigment ink - dye will just seep into the chipboard so you need a pigment which sits on the surface. Here I used a black brilliance ink.
Now just to mention if you see this demo'ed at a show you may see us leave the embossing powder in a pile and quickly flip the tile onto it whilst its still hot. This is for more experienced who have finger tips of steel lol! If its your first time then let it cool before adding more ink and another layer of powder.
NB: If you remove your stamp when its still hot you could end up with molten embossing powder stuck to it and cause damage. After about a minute it will simply pop off.
You can use coloured inks or a clear ink but make sure you at least have versamark on to protect your stamp. Don't use clear stamps for this, just rubbah!
OK you got that? Go have a play! For this I punched holes in the tiles BEFORE I added powder and made a little hanger :) Don't be afraid to experiment! Come show us your creations over at The Stampman!
