Embossing (DT) As You Like It

Hello again!  Hope this finds you well.  Of course, as it is a Thursday, it has to be an AS YOU LIKE IT challenge so if you are sitting comfortably I will tell you about our theme for the next fortnight (yes, I know you've seen the post title) - and it is Heat or Dry Embossing

Confession time, it's a long while since I did either of these!  I like the look created by embossing folders, but for some bizarre reason I always have trouble with it.  I like heat embossing, in fact I used to do it all the time before I found a waterproof stamping ink, and I really like that slightly raised and shiny smooth line when the powder melts under the heat of the gun (as well as the smell of burning dust, told you it had been a long time) - and of course the embossed lines create a great border for when you are colouring with messy materials

So I coloured this one in pencil, go figure!

So, I have used
Stamped on a kraft card base with VersaMark and embossed with Stampendous Ultra Detail White powder, and the image coloured with Polychromos Pencils
Some wonky layering (jeez) and a Martha Stewart corner punch

Don't forget, whatever your preference for embossing, do come and share it with us

Hugs to all

It's too messy for me to enjoy doing, but I do love the effect. I've never tried it in white either, but it looks fabulous on your florals. A prime opportunity to opt for something messy and you use pencils! Nutter!!! :0) xx
