Technique Thursday: Embossed Coloring With Pastels and With Alcohol Markers


Every Thursday on Paper Crafter’s Library is Technique Thursday – it’s when we create and feature projects for our Club 52 online class (our year-long technique club), and for our Paper Crafter’s Library members. Although really, we probably should have called it Club 104 since each week we typically release two techniques LOL!

We’re now on week 22, and are continuing on with embossing techniques.  Last week we were using UTEE (Ultra Thick) embossing powder.  This week we’ve moved on to embossing with white embossing powder and adding color with alternate mediums to enhance specific areas of a stamped image.  For example, in the tag on the right, the owl is highlighted by adding color using pastels directly over the embossed image.  The tag on the left adds multiple colors with the use of alcohol markers to the entire embossed image.

If you’re interested in checking out what we’ve covered so far, you can look at our Club 52 page. If you’re a techique junkie and would like to learn new techniques (as many of them are ones we have created), or revisit old ones – you can still sign up from this page – you’ll be able to access all 22 weeks we’ve done so far, plus the remaining weeks, and your access to the classroom will last for 15 months.
