Embossing..and lots of it!
The lovely ladies at Sunny challenges have given me another opportunity to be a guest designer. Along with a great sketch, the instruction this week is embossing. This is my favourite technique for adding texture and dimension to any project.
I have used both dry embossing (using a folder and the big shot) and heat embossing (using powder and the heat gun). I couldn't decide between gold or silver powder so thought 'what the heck!' and used both! I also sponged around the edges of the background embossing as this helps to make it stand out.
So make sure you check out the challenge and have a go. I am in Bali at the moment, but will be checking in on what everyone is making.
