Craft-Room Challenge - Heat Embossing


Good Morning I know it's been two weeks because those last weeks were my time off work.    Still thrilled to be working and value it like anything!

Also after two week's its time for another challenge at Craft-Room Challenge.    The theme this time has been set by the very talented Suzanne.   Her theme for the challenge is Heat Embossing.

Suzanne introduces her theme with these words.  'I selected my theme based on the past couple of summers we have had here in the UK - which have been far from good.  I thought we may do with a bit of "heat" although if we are at present experiencing a heatwave then the theme may prove a little unpopular as the last thing we will all want is to get those heat guns out ...whoops!  However I would love to see your heat embossing on your crafty projects......'   Oh so true but it did cool down a bit over the week-end and you do have 2 weeks to enter.

Hay I love heat embossing right, and experimenting just a little bit.    A Lincoln SY show I picked up a set of 3 wooden bags, this is the smallest of the three,   The heart and the peacock have been stencil embossed with dimension pastes, while the paste was wet EP was sprinkled over it and everything set aside to dry.  When the paste had gone off the ep was heated in the usual way, with wonderful results.   The ep on the heart is Piccolo Temple Stone had to buy a second pot recently am so in love with this stuff!  

Once again the team have each lent their own special individual style to the challenge please do check them out.
