easy embossing with stencils on sticky-back canvas
Here's a fun new technique that I just discovered - embossing on the sticky side of Claudine Hellmuth Studio Sticky Back Canvas using Ranger Adirondack embossing powders, Perfect Pearls and stencils.

This is a perfect way to get a second life out of a piece of Sticky-back canvas - especially if don't like what you created on the front. Just emboss on the back!

Thanks to
Allie Gower for coming up with idea to emboss on the back of the Sticky-Back in the first place. Brilliant!

Here's my twist on the idea:


A piece of Claudine Hellmuth Studio Sticky-Back Canvas
Embossing powder
Perfect Pearls
Heat-it Craft Tool

To get started, remove the backing paper from the Sticky-back canvas and place sticky side face up. Place any plastic stencil on top. The stencil will stick to the surface just enough so you don't have to worry about it sliding around.

Sprinkle Ranger Adirondack Stream embossing powder all over the piece of Sticky-back canvas. Here I am doing this over a sheet of printer paper.

Remove the stencil and then heat the embossing powder with your heat tool.

Once it's cooled, dust on a little Perfect Pearls, to remove the stickiness from the exposed areas left by the stencil

All done! Here's a closeup of the completed technique. The Adirondack powder on the sticky-back canvas produces an interesting leathery texture. Very fun!
