Craft-Room Challenge - Emboss it

Writing this on Sunday evening a very wet and windy Sunday the best place was home, this is spring!   Been playing with some canvas something to share with you later when it is all done, might be a while yet.

Today as this is published it is Tuesday and time for a new challenge at Craft-Room.   Each challenge we set all the lovely people that join in share fantastic things with us it is very exciting when a new challenge starts waiting to see what people will come up with!

This time it is Esther who is leading the way, Esther also designs for Stamp Addicts and those lovely ladies are our sponsor this time with £10.00 for one lucky person to spend at their shop.


Esther's challenge for us all is to use an embossing technique dry embossing or heat embossing you choose.  

For my sample I had a little play with colour and different techniques.   Usually if you heat emboss an image and then clear emboss over the top it seems to enhance the first embossing, not it turns out with Moon glow two tone, rather deadened the two tone effect.   The stamps are all Judykins with a plain shadow stamp used for the background.   The middle square has been triple embossed and the flower stamped into the melted ep.   Cut the tag shape out and then run through the Big Shot in an embossing folder.    The team used now to my often quirky off beat makes have been very generous in their comments on this.   Please repay their kindness with visits to their blogs and share some love with them.

The Fashionable Stamping challenge also have an embossing challenge running so I thought to share this with them.
