Scratch N Sniff Card

Are you tempted to scratch your computer screen to see if it REALLY smells like oranges?!? Does it... I know you tried :)
This is a 4 x 4 card using the NEW set Tart and Tangy from the upcoming Mini. This set is cute, cute, cute... contains 4 images - an orange/lime, cherries, an apple and a strawberry.
To get a scratch n sniff card, you mix 1 part NO SUGAR cool-aid, jello, cocoa powder, etc with 1 1/2 parts clear embossing powder. I didn't have craft ink in apricot appeal and only orange, so I used classic ink first (using the rock N roll technique - more on this later), then I overstamped with versamark and then I hit it with my embossing buddy and the special smelling mix and embossed with the heat tool. Cool, oranges!
Other sets used: Sprinkles and Celebrate everything.
Rock N Roll Technique: Ink up image using lighter shade (apricot appeal here) then roll the edges of the inked stamp into the darker ink (only orange here). Lets practice... hold you hand over the keyboard with you pointer finger over the "h" - now roll your wrist so your finger hovers over the y, 7, 8, i, l, comma, m and back to "h"..... see easy, huh? Now go make something for me to sniff at the next stamp camp:)
