The eBrush airbrush tool is such a fun way to use your crafting supplies in fun new ways! Try using the eBrush machine along with clear embossing powder and your stamps to create this fun technique resulting in a soft, variegated background. It’s perfect for cardmaking, tags, scrapbook pages, and more!
Materials you’ll need for this project:
- eBrush Machine
- Inspired Inc. Well Versed Papercrafting Kit
- Piece of white cardstock
- a stamp
- Watermark ink
- Clear embossing powder
- Brayer (if you are using a large stamp)
- Heat tool
1. Ink your stamp using the watermark ink.
Place the cardstock on top of the stamp, and while holding the cardstock in place, use the brayer to transfer the ink from the stamp to the cardstock.
2. Place the stamped cardstock onto a folded sheet of paper. Sprinkle the clear embossing powder onto the cardstock making sure to cover all areas of the wet ink.
3. Tap the excess embossing powder onto the folded piece of paper.
4. Using the folded paper as a funnel, carefully pour the excess powder back into the jar.
5. Use the heat tool to melt the embossing powder on the stamped cardstock.
You will know that the embossing ink has melted when it turned from a powdery image to a glossy image. Your paper may start to curl a bit from the heat. Don’t worry. You can straighten it out later when you adhere it to your project.
6. Gather eBrush airbrush tool along with several markers, nail polish remover, and a paper towel.
7. Use the eBrush to apply the first layer of color to the embossed cardstock. Begin with the darkest color along the edges.
8. Build more color onto the cardstock using the eBrush tool.
Continue adding color to your project, working towards the lightest color in the center of your design.
9. Once you have the color applied as desired, apply nail polish remover to a paper towel and swipe it across the raised, embossed areas of the stamped design.
The ink on the glossy, embossed surface will come off, revealing the lighter, white cardstock underneath. The cardstock areas of the image will be filled with beautiful, variegated color!
10. Your design is now ready to add to your project. Use on a scrapbook page, card, tag, invitation, etc.
This is such a fun technique to use with the eBrush that you can apply to your projects over and over again with varying results. It’s a great way to get multiple looks from supplies you already own. Enjoy!
