Tutorial Tuesday - Utee Gold
Hey! How are you. Did anybody even miss that I didn't blog for a week? I know I missed you. Didn't get caught up with my committments, but at least I'm not further behind. Let's get to today's tutorial, shall we....
Utee ultra thick embossing powder
Perfect Medium or VersaMark (not in pic)
Sponge colour onto cardstock
Dab Perfect Medium or VersaMark (hereon in, I will refer to VersaMark) over entire surface that has been inked.
Sprinkle Utee over entire surface.
Heat emboss. Repeat by covering entire surface with VersaMark and heat emboss with Utee. If your surface is not smooth, repeat for a third time.
Cover entire surface with VersaMark, once again.
With your paint brush, brush on Perfect Pearls and/or PearlEx.
Sprinkle Utee over top of surface, and heat emboss.
When you heat emboss this final coat (yes, it really is the final coat), expect the Utee to blow all over your desk, and even yourself!
This is only a teeny tiny section of my desk--you should have seen the whole thing. I would have photographed it for you, except the camera didn't capture the full essence of the mess.
Can you see the gold, can you see the gold? This background is so cool, don't you think?! No more coats of Utee--you are good to go.
Whalaa, here is my final card. I made four other backgrounds at the same time; you will see some more examples very soon. It is so easy to make multiple backgrounds at one time, and is very convenient when you need a background in a pinch.
