In The Pink (DT) Embossing

Hello peeps, it is my turn on the Pink Job-Share with Annette to bring you something for the challenge starting at IN THE PINK today.

For this fortnight's challenge we are asking to see your EMBOSSING - that can be wet or dry, or with dies/stencils - there are a surprising number of embossing techniques so we would like you to show yours.

I have been wanting to try the white outline style of embossing for a while but couldn't see to find the right stamp/image, until I bought a magazine with a fabulous floral stamp/die set as the free gift.

Ooh get me, all subtle!
So the flowers were stamped with VersaMark and I used a fine white heat embossing powder.  I painted the petals and leaves with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and then fussy cut the whole bouquet.
The vase was also stamped, embossed and painted, but there was a vase die with the freebies so that was simple.
Some polka dot and candy striped paper from my scraps box
Tonic scalloped edged dies for a little bit of interest
and a Tattered Lace sentiment die (which was a freebie with their magazine)

We are thrilled to have on board Tracy from Dies To Die For as
our very generous sponsor of this theme with a £15 store voucher for the lucky winner.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Ooooh fabulous! I love using white embossing on an image. I think it's very striking and this one is beautiful with all that pink. I just LOVE this stamp set. It's not often I do love free stamps quite so much, but it has so many different elements it's great. Xx
