Judy from Stamp and Create showed this technique one night using a special embossing powder that seems to float on top of normal ep making the work look very metallic and substantial yet you only use a very small amount. It comes from an Australian company called Pipe Dream Ink I think. An image was stamped on a white sheet of paper and after embossing an old piece of jigsaw puzzle, the same stamp is inked, (in this case in black) and placed lightly on top of the jig saw and after a few minutes, taken off. The puzzle piece is then placed on top and matched with the stamped image below. This is the technique I like to use on the monograms. I thought it would have been better if the black image was done in brown then it wouldn't look so photo copy - ish. Fun tho!
