This week's challenge is Just Add - EMBOSSING. Heat embossing is one of my favourite techniques. It was the first thing I tried when I started stamping. I still remember how cool it was watching that powder melt before my eyes.
Anyway, this is what I came up with
I thought I'd also add in a little dry embossing as well, so I dry embossed a 'frame' on my watercolour paper. I then masked the edges and stamped the daisies using Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I then made up a wash of water and a couple of drops of Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive reinkers and brushed it all over the watercolour paper using a paintbrush. Then I waited for it to dry, which took AGES. When it was dry, I matted it onto some Basic Black, wrapped some Linen Thread around a few times and added the sentiment. The sentiment is from Tiny Tags, stamped using Black StazOn onto watercolour paper and punched out using the Jewelry Tag punch. I also dry embossed a couple of lines at the bottom of the card base and added the main image using dimensionals.
So that's it - first assignment over! Thanks for visiting and look forward to seeing your challenge entries. Hope your day is a good one
