You know by now that our September Challenge theme is Embossing Techniques! We hope you’re preparing your projects to share with us and linking them to the linky tool with our Steampunk F.E. Linus cat either at the bottom of this post or in the right side bar. Remember, if you use Stampendous stamps, your entry counts twice!
Today, BlogStar Rhea Weigand is showing us a fun way to create a beautiful look by combining the fun of coloring with Copics topped by the glorious raised shine of embossing.
Embossing Tricks & Techniques
I’m so excited about this month because almost every project I do has embossing in it somewhere.
In this design I’ve used Copic™ markers to color and Wedding Corners Perfectly Clear Stamps to emboss over my coloring. I just love the way this turned out.
After I was completely done with coloring the CRS504 Jumbo Poinsettia (available at Michaels Stores), I stamped and embossed the swirls from Wedding Corners Perfectly Clear Stamps over it in VersaMark ink.
After embossing I accented the middle of the flowers with Halo Gold Mix. I added red berries by dotting red Stickles and then finished with ribbon and a couple of charms.
This tag will definitely be turned into a Christmas Card! Hope you’re joining our challenge with your own embossed creation!
Several of our Design Team have posted samples of embossing techniques to inspire you this week. Here are the links to their websites so you can see (and comment on) their glorious projects:
