Embossing challenge

This week the Pals Paper Arts is focusing on embossing.  A fun technique to do. I hope you will find some time to play with the rest of the talented Pals this week.  


Since I do not have the pretty embossing powders that Stampin' Up offers, I always use my clear embossing powder.  I stamp my images in the color I want and then using my stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamp over that image in Versamark.  Just sprinkle it with embossing powder and heat it up.  Great results.  This week I thought I would emboss some bright flowers.  


Stamps:  Fabulous Florets, Vintage Vogue
Paper:  Black, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, White
Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, Versamark
Accessories:  oval punches, pearls, sponge dauber, clear embossing powder, heat gun
All products are Stampin'  Up.

Here is a close-up of the flowers.


I love that shine!  I will have to admit, I am not one to do a lot of cutting out ... I stink at it.  I was a Barbie kind of girl and never did the paper doll thing.

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,
Pam~
