Embossing – Jowilna 101

Embossing is one of my favourite techniques – it is always magical and looks amazing. Today I am sharing a quick favourite of how to spice up your plain embossed projects.


Inspired by colour of the year 2017

Embossing - Jowilna 101 - Colour of the year

I like to mix my own colours of embossing powders and to create a custom look. So that’s what I did while being inspired by the green trend of the colour of the year 2017.

  • Step 1

    Add a single drop of All Purpose Ink into some white embossing powder.

Sprinkle of this green embossing powder directly onto your project while still damp. Then heat the clumps of wet embossing powder to melt into puddles on your project for a fun look.
