Multi-Colored Embossing + Giveaway

Probably the most common question we get on Splitcoast is "What can I use that looks like snow?"

I've tried lots of things. I did a TV live spot one morning with Snow-Tex - which is a glitter paste. This is fun and sparkly, but you need to use it with waterproof ink - it's a waterbased product.

Puff paints work too - but they can get smooshed if going through the mail, so those are best on decor items and ornaments.

So I was super excited to find out about white puff embossing powder.

More often than snow, I like to do watercolor surf, and I've looked for something that fit the bill for a textured surf foam for most of my crafting life, and I finally found it.

The texture is perfection - even giving the appearance of bubbles. I used a Versamarker to apply VersaMark between the Phthalo Blue Green Shade wash, which fades into Amazonite and the Monte Amiata wash - my fave beachy colors, and applied and heated the powder. I wanted to indicate that line where the depth of the water drops down with the two different blues.

BOOM.

Perfect surf. I love it. The sentiment is from this adorable ocean themed set.
 
 But I was talking about snow, right? So I thought I should use it for snow too. 

I took this layering bough set and stamped it in Turquoise Sea and Tranquil Teal

Next I used the Versamarker again to apply the big areas of snow, but if you've actually lived anywhere with snow, there's also a powdery dusting of snow on tree limbs where the snow has been disturbed by wind or a bird. So to get that effect quickly - I just lightly misted my card with water, and then quickly applied the embossing powder

Yes, you can emboss with water, and it gives you fine details you might not otherwise get. The sentiment is from this stamp set, and I stamped it twice - once on the card in Nocturne, and once in Turquoise Sea on White cardstock. I cut the ornament out of the blue one, and brushed the edges with my teeniest Life Changing Blender Brush in Tranquil Teal for dimension. One Christmas card done! :)
