card making: selective embossing

When it comes to applying the technique of heat embossing to a paper project most people naturally assume that you must use a special watermark ink pad (generally a Versamark pad) and a stamp.  With the use of a VersaMarker pen you can selectively apply heat embossing in specific (and small) areas on card designs. Here are three examples of card designs that utilize this useful technique.

For this design, I used the VersaMarker pen and wrote “Nana”, then heat embossed it with glittery black powder.

For both of these designs, I colored in some of the slants with the VersaMarker pen and then used a metallic gold powder to emboss.

What are some ways you can think of to use this marker? Happy crafting!
