Adding A Nice Glossy Black Outline to No Line Colored Images:

To get started with my project today I stamped the image in a no line coloring ink.   This way you are less likely to smear any black ink during the coloring process. This sometimes happens with most alcohol marker friendly inks especially when you have to stamp a couple times to get a nice impression. Make sure that you leave the stamp in your stamp positioning tool so that it will make the next step easier.

Once I had the image stamped out I could get started on the no line coloring process. Sometimes it's much easier to stamp your images in a no line coloring ink or a lighter ink to do the no line coloring look. Once you have the coloring completed and it's the way that you like it. It's time to place the colored panel back in your stamp positioning tool and stamp the image again with WOW Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink.

Adding Embossed Details to Alcohol Marker Coloring:

One you have the image stamped in the embossing ink you are going to cover the stamped image with your Primary Black Embossing Powder from WOW Embossing. And heat set it with your Dual Speed Heat Tool. Once heat set and the embossing powder is smooth and melted you will have a beautifully glossy black outline over your colored image.

Adding a Little Color:

Once you have your image all nice and glossy it's time to add the sentiment. This is where you can have a lot of fun with your different colored embossing powders. This is where you can pull in both a fun colored embossing powder and a little metallic as well. It's actually easier than you may think. Simply stamp the sentiment with your embossing ink and place the metallic ink You can ink blend a little color around the edge of your embossed panel. And add it to a mat that of coordinating cardstock slightly off set.

For the background panel we are going to use the Confetti Heart Stencil. Through the stencil you are going to mix a little little Pearl Stencil Butter or Paste with some of the Gold Dust Sparkles. Use a pallet knife and apply the mixture through the small circles of the stencil.  Once the paste has dried you are going to ink blend a pink or other coordinating ink color over the dried paste. Make sure to create an ombre ink blended background for more interest.

Once you have put the card front onto the card base you are all complete and can embellish your card with some little hearts that you have punched out from a piece of cardstock that you have used Polished Gold and Polished Silver Super Fine Embossing Powders onto and melted. This is a great way to create custom embellishments and add a little more sparkle. And there you have it on how to add embossed details to your alcohol maker coloring. Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonder day and you give these techniques a try.
