Tutorial - Double Embossing - Sin City Stamps

Hi everybody,
I was watching a very cool tutorial the other day from Stamping with Frenchie and learned a new technique called double embossing.  I never knew you could use two colors of embossing powder on one image.  I knew this technique would look beautiful on the peacock feathers from the Wildlife stamp set from Sin City Stamps SHOP. 

I began by just cutting a scalloped circle to emboss on but you can use anything you'd like or just emboss on the actual card itself.  Then, if you don't learn anything else from me, if you don't already use an anti-static pad on your paper before you emboss, please start.  It will make the result look perfect.

Stamp image with Versamark and  you'll need 2 colors of embossing powder.  Sprinkle just a little of the lightest color on the Versamark then quickly dump it over to get that powder off.

 Next, pour the second darker color over the entire area so that it gets 
all the rest of the Versamark areas and tap off. 

 This is what it should look like before being heat embossed

and after heat embossing....

 See how beautiful and vibrant the colors looked.  I had debated on using pink and 
turquoise or pink and white also.  Any combination will look fabulous.

 Choose an embossing folder, emboss and stamp the layer of paper the embossed images will lay on.

This is the result when it is put together.

 This is the final card. 


I hope this is something that you'll try because it was quick, easy and actually fun.  
I loved seeing the end result.
