Emboss It

It's Esthers turn to choose the theme for the latest  Craft Room Challenge and she has chosen Embossing. This can be heat embossing or dry embossing or you could use embossing paste.

Stamp Addicts are the sponsors for the challenge.

I was going through my embossing folders to find one to make a card and came across a set of Tim Holtz ATC size folders so my card became ATCs.

For the background I used card that I'd inked a while ago and can't remember what inks I used. After embossing the ATCs I went over the raised images with vintage photo Distress ink and then I went over this with a Versamark pen and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I used 7 Gypsies and Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous stamps on the background.

This is a side view to show the clear embossing.

I'm entering my ATC in the Fashionable Stamping Challenge whose theme is Embossing.

I'm looking forward to seeing your Embossed creations and I hope you all visit the Craft Room Challenge Blog to see the wonderful creations that the rest of the DT team have done.
