More of those Damask leaves--to go with my stampin' party theme for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Birthday Palooza (say that 5 times fast!) But this time the leaves are in black...with some flowers (to change it up a bit.) :o) The candle is a Party Lite one that my sweet BFF Kim gave me for my Bday. Loves ya Kimmy!
The technique used for this thinger is resist with a twist (colouring the embossing with Copic markers.)

2...Emboss resist with a twist: Copic Marker colouring
...emboss resist with Copics:
Step 1) Emboss Damask leaves in clear (Used here: Versamark & clear embossing powder)
Step 2) Cover the paper with black ink--or the hue of your choosing. (I like pigment inks since the black is usually more true (not purple or brownish)
Step 3) Wipe off the excess ink.
Step 4) Heat the embossing a little to bring the gloss back (ink can make it a little hazy, but heating it again like this solves that.)
Step 5) Colour the embossing with Copic markers. The clear embossing doesn't seem to leave any residue on the copics (where white embossing powder does seem to); however, since I can't stay in the lines, I use the broad chisel tip of my Copics in case any black ink gets on there.)
Step 6) Heat it again if you want a little more shine & a funky blend of colour.
Step 7) Cut them out and then.....
Thank You ever so much for sticking with me
through my strangely-timed schedule!
