Dragon's Dream Tag it on - Pressing Matters

Hello there, it's Wednesday must be Dragon's Dream TIO!   After all the great sky themed tags we saw last week really looking forward to seeing what people will do this week.   It is Helen's turn this week to give us our dream, Helen's choice is all about embossing.    Any type of embossing you are comfortable with, just remember to use a rubber/clear stamp on your tag somewhere.

For my sample piece a mix of DI's coloured the base tag that was then embossed in a folder and a another DI pad touched over the top to highlight the embossing.   Vellum cut with Paper Artsy flower dies, stamped and heat embossed with with Cosmic shimmer.   The petals snipped down to the center and and rolled backwards.    Tando Bird Cage cage triple heat embossed to make a gilded cage, the two birds in the set coloured with Cosmic Shimmer spray, and them stamped with one of the Paper Artsy stamps used on the flower.

Do check out the rest of the team's samples fabulous work to be seen again this week.   Of course we also hope you will get your embossing tools, folders and/or embossing powers out and join in at Dragon's Dream TIO.
