colour embossing without coloured powders

It's July so to get a bit of a taste of what Christmas in winter would be like here's a Christmas card.
It's a bit strange to try and feel like Christmas in winter when its been 22C here (but I'm not complaining). I was talking to my sister in London the other day and she was saying that it's 22C there too - but Summer time. The Aussie weather is pretty good really.

Anyway to the point! Coloured embossing without the coloured powder!
It's very simple really. You firstly ink your stamp on a clear Versamark pad and then onto the coloured dye ink pad then stamp it onto the paper. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder and melt the powder till shiny with a heat gun. Done!
Don't forget to clean your stamp before changing colours as because you've inked it in Versamark first it will look pretty clean after you've stamped it but still needs to be cleaned.
Oh and Happy Christmas in July!  :)
