Morning Peeps, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Annie is challenging us to use either wet or dry embossing on our work. Our sponsor is the Sizzix.
I tend to heat emboss an awful lot of my stamping, not only do I like the sheen from it gives but if I am going to colour in it gives me a good edge to stop me going over the edges.......a regular occurrence as something of an unnatural colourist.
Both of my shares are Chocolate Baroque samples, the top tag was cut twice from heavy cardstock using a TL die and stuck together to create a firm base for the inks. My starting point was to pain the whole tag with a light brown acrylic paint, the a coat of crackle graze followed by a coat of cream acrylic paint. I then randomly stamped a Rose and script image and heat embossed with detail copper and also added some stencilling. The UTEE piece is just a random blend of UTEE crystals which I melted on a craft sheet and then stamped into with the Rose image. The three little hearts were stamped with the same script and embossed with detail clear to give them a bit of a sheen.
This set of cards and matching box are all TL dies, one of my favourite die sets from 2016. The Spring flowers formed part of a recent CB show on Hochanda and are all stamped with versafine and heat embossed with detail white powder , then coloured in with Spectrum pencils and matted and layered in coordinating cardstock.
Last week the girls 'Sussex Cousins' came to stay with their Mum and Dad - aka one of our son's and DIL. Pictured above are from left Cousins Prince and Luka along with Daisy, Holly and Poppy to the rear. Luka is a rescue from Cyprus, apparently they have a large number of Hungarian Viszlas abandoned over there, they are bought for hunting and then just abandoned when the season ends and an English lady Vicar living there tracks them down and re-homes them, mostly in the UK.
My team mates have all come up with different embossing takes on the theme and you will find them all over at the challenge blog.
