I failed to use my embossing enamels this past Christmas.
There are three containers of this gorgeous Stampendous medium sitting on the sidelines of my craft room.
Thanks to the following challenge~I have met my goal in opening a bottle again!

Melissa demonstrates sprinkling and embossing to get a raised splattered effect.
This is a great way to use the stuff!
Here's a zoom in~
It looks promising in a jar, but when I first used it on Versamark inked images years ago~I couldn't predict the outcome of colors (because of the mixed-in gold).
The gold is AWESOME, but practically speaking, I didn't like the uncertainty of where the sparkle/color would land.
It would intimidate me~just sayin'.
So, I left it sitting there~thinking I'd try AGAIN...next Christmas.
However, with Melissa's technique, you sprinkle where you want it to stick and delicately heat (so as not to blow it right off the paper).
It's an embellishment, rather than the star feature.
I'm much more comfortable with this approach.
