The beautiful hat is a digi image on the La Pashe 'Just Inklined 2012 CD'. My printing this out in a certain way was an experiment and as it was successful I thought I would pass on the tip.
When I attended the Jane Gill painting flowers workshop we stamped the flower images and then heat embossed with clear powder before we went on to paint. This was a technique to give a clear outline and help keep the colours in the place in which they were put. It worked very well and we had some lovely stamps to use. But say you haven't got many stamps to choose from but want to try the technique.
When looking at all the wonderful digi images on all the La Pashe CD's I wondered how I could use them in the same way so I tried .....and it worked.
I used smooth surface water colour paper (90lbs Cold Pressed/Not Grain Fine) and trimmed it down to A4 size. The pad is actually 12 x 9 inches.
I put this into the printer and printed out my choice of digi image and IMMEDIATELY it came out of the printer I covered the image in clear embossing powder. Once then heated as usual it worked perfectly. I then carried on and used the Distress Markers in the same way I would water colour paints and here is the result.
