  4. Using the Mickey Mouse Sentiments and Icons stamps, randomly stamp all over the pale blue aperture with Versamark ink. Sprinkle white embossing powder over the stamped images and put the excess powder back into the pot. Gently heat the images with a heat gun until the powder melts and turns glossy. Leave to cool down.
