Tips & Tricks Friday - Crystal Effects & Dye Ink

I've been looking at the jewellery and embellishments made with the 'Soda Pop Tops' all over the web.  Time to make my own.

The clear protective layer over the image is Crystal Effects - a thick cloudy liquid that dries clear after a few hours (best left over night).  However it is water based so it makes water based ink such as a Stampin' Up!® classic inks run.

To protect my stamped images from the Crystal Effects I punched out my stamped images then applied a layer of Versamark Ink and sprinkled then heated a layer of clear embossing powder over the top.  This provided a protective layer from the Crystal Effects.
