It's Sabrina again! I'm back with more flawed rubber. This time I used a slightly different technique.
This sewing machine is from the Mirkwood Sewing Set (10577-X). I pulled it out of the flawed rubber box and decided to play with it. It was a bear to fussy cut as I'm sure you can imagine. This time, instead of inking the stamp to make the details pop, I filled the gaps with embossing powder then heated it to melt it in the cracks.
Wouldn't ya know it? I was so busy doing it, that I forgot to take pictures of the process! Doh!
What I figured out that gave me the best results was to dump the embossing powder in heaps all over the stamp then use my finger to brush across the top. I tried a brush first, but it putted the embossing powder out of the crevices. I used a piece of paper, but it left too much embossing powder where I didn't want it.
Then I used the typical steps of running the heat gun to let it heat up then starting by heating the back of the card. Because it's a powder that melts and shrinks, I did two layers of embossing powder for the spots that didn't fill completely the first time.
