Embossing with Stencils

We have many Crafter's Workshop stencils for sale in various sizes and some ladies asked me to show them other ways to use them besides the same old tracing with pen technique. Here is one example I came up with-EMBOSSING WITH STENCILS.
I used 2 different stencils-the squiggly line and the alphabet.
1. Trace, using a VERSAMARK PEN(brush end) the line on the top and immediately sprinkle with gold embossing powder. Shake off the excess and heat.
2.Repeat for the bottom line.
3.Using the alphabet stencil and doing one letter at a time(with the point tip) trace with the VersaMark pen, sprinkle with powder, shake off excess and heat.
This is only a simple layout but in real life looks rich.
I used gold metallic cardstock for the mats and a 7 Gypsies punch for the journalling circles.
