The theme this monthe for the Christmas Challenge at Happy Little Stampers is EMBOSSING.
Now I have mixed feelings about this theme, the dry type of embossing I'm more than OK with, but the heat embossing technique fills me with dread. Why? Because I always seem to make so much mess and get the powder where I don't need it to be. And yes I do use one of those duster thingies and it has made a big difference, but I still need practise.
But onwards and upwards and never one to be defeated - remember my word for 2016 is FEARLESS - so I tackled the heat embossing issue. Here's my sparkly heat embossed snowman sitting comfortably on a dry embossed panel.
Mmm, more issues with it not really showing in the photograph. Let's try again:
Stamps:FunStamps, Scribble Snowman; HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black; versamark
Embossing: Crafty Impressions, black rainbow sparkle; Cuttlebug, swiss dots
Promarkers: col grey 3 & 5, poppy
Die: MFT Die-namics, Stitched Valley
Do go see what the rest of the HLS DT have created - here - I'm in awe of their expertise. I hope you'll be inspired to give embossing a go and I'll see your card popping up in the gallery.
Thanks for listening to my tale of woe today, I really do appreciate it. And keep embossing!
