Lots to do - embossing


Lots of friends from blogland and forumland have Birthdays this month so been sorting out little gifts. Not saying who this is for so there is still some surprise! The top is covered with metal embossed on a TSS plate and this week Hilda this week is challenging us to use an embossing method for the Lots to do challenge. Hildas own work this week is all her own she even designed and made her own embossing plate!

Bodyshop tub again, this one was Mango body cream and an orange tub. Covered all over with Alcohol inks Steam, Juniper, and Berry blended with a little copper mixative. Walnut hollow 4" square embossed on a TSS plate trimmed and glued on with glossy accents, after which it was coloured with the same alcohol inks and sprayed with Mango Lemondade Memories Mist. The 4 red flowers were punched out of Plaid glass paint smeared onto a textured acrylic plate when dry peeled off, flowers punched out and stuck on top of the metal testure side up. 5 red gems fill the centres of the swirls.
