Less is More # 15 - OLC Embossing

Oh my goodness, how long is it since I got the heat gun out?  Far too long, in fact, it's so long that I can't actually remember the last time I used it.  This week's LESS IS MORE have a one layer card challenge with the theme of embossing (dry or heat) so I've done both.


I've dry embossing a square in the centre of the card using my Martha Stewart score board, then I stamped using VersaMark and this wonderful skeleton trees stamp by Kodomo.  I sprinkled randomly with opaque red, transparent blue and detail silver embossing powers and then turned the heat gun on.  Oh my, the smell of burning dust and cat hair!  The sentiment is simply stamped with a Hero Arts message.

Hugs, Sxx
