Simon Says........Emboss It !





This week the challenge is ...........

EMBOSS IT ............ heat and/or dry 


This week we are asked to either Hot or Dry embossing - in my usual 'wishy washy' way I coundn't make my mind up - so - I decided to both together!! A bit of an experiment - I used white so sadly it doesn't photograph too well but it looks beautiful in Real Life especially with snowflakes. I shall certainly do it again and dry a colour.

.
My image is sweet Pia by Sarah Kay and coloured with  Copics and cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Classic scallops.
I use a Cuttlebug with the Textile embossing folder - I used Stampendous Gloss embossing ink with a use a Ranger Brayer and then coated it with pearl Perfect Pearls Pastels.
The background paper is Dear Lizzy Neapolitan which I punched the top and bottom edges with  Martha Stewart and added them with Simplicity Lace
I used a variety of flowers which were used the Gloss embossing ink to the dauber with  the Stampendous Glitter kit.
I added a Maya Road Trinket Pin with a bow.
I now must add on my wish list a Acrylic Blocks - the state of mine are disgusting!!!

GORGEOUS, Heather! Your coloring is incredible! Love the flowers, too. :)

Super the way that lace picks up on the frilly dress edging. Very effective with the double embossing - even more so I think because you've used white: it's subtle & not in your face.
