Everyone Emboss

Over on Creative Card Crew this week, Linda set the challenge above 'Everyone Emboss' to use any form of embossing on your cards.

Cosmic Shimmer Emboss Powders, Inkadinkadoo stamps, ribbon, cardstock

Well I've done so much dry embossing recently I thought it was time to dust off the old heat gun and do some stamping and powder embossing. Ahem - am I out of practice or what? Bit of smudging and over inking me thinks but never mind, I'll just have to squint at it then I won't notice!

Used Versamark ink in too great a quantity and Cosmic shimmer powders in Raspberry violet, Lime Blush and Aqua Blush on Inkadinkado stamps. I cut the large flower out along with the centre and layered them up over some ribbon.

Hmm, not sure if it's the powders or the ink that I went a bit heavy handed with. Will have to try again at some point
