Christmas Card -Embossing & Copics

I was playing around with these Nature's Reflection-Evergreen Tree stamps that I rented from Raisin Boat. I learned a fun technique by just trying something different.

First, I stamped the trees with Versa Mark Watermark Ink, then poured White Embossing Powder on it. Then, I heated it with a heat tool. Then, I took about 5 green Copic Markers and made dots all over the trees. Then, I used the heat tool on the trees again and that absorbed the Copic ink into the White Embossing Powder. While it was still hot, I sprinkled Stampendous-Crystal Snow-White on the trees. Then I heated it up again to set everything. You can't really tell in the picture but the Crystal Snow made the trees Sparkle. I did the same technique with the snowy rocks.
Then, I embossed the Sentiment from My Pink Stamper's-Christmas Wishes Stamp Set. I also tied PaperTrey Ink twine around the card. I loved how it turned out.
