Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:

Step 1

You can use any craft punch design but a punch with intricate designs will fit today's tip better.

As for me, I have here a beautiful butterfly craft punch with intricately detailed wings. I used this punch on a plain black card stock to produce this beautiful embellishment you can see below.

Next, we'll use our embossing powder and VersaMark watermark stamp pad.

Just press and squeeze the butterfly punch onto the stamp pad. By doing this, I'm making the watermark stamp seep through and cover the cardstock including some of the intricate areas of the butterfly.

Step 3

Once completely covered and wet from our stamp, we'll pour some embossing powder onto our butterfly. Make sure it gets into the nooks too!

That's perfect! This sort of semi-coated look is really nice and will give our scrapbook embellishment a rustic look.

Step 4

Next, get your heat tool and heat the embossing powder to give your embellishment a golden shine.

As I heat this, I'm going to use my scissors to hold the embellishment. If you have some tweezers that will be better for holding the embellishment so that you won't burn your hand from the heat.

After that, what you're left with is this semi-rustic looking scrapbook embellishment.

I love how that turned up! It's a really gorgeous way of using your embossing powders to produce a rustic look out of your punch embellishments. It looks like it's slowly rusting and it will look especially beautiful as a scrapbook embellishment on a vintage scrapbook layout!
