Mission Emboss-ible!

Sometimes the trouble with a seemingly easy challenge like embossing is that you can't narrow down what you want to do....it took me ages to decide on this! Jingle Belles is hosting Mission Emboss-ible! this fortnight & here I am entering on the last day :)



Supplies: stamps from PTI; Versamark, Pirate Gold EP; Aged Gold Frantage EP; distress inks in Barn Door and Festive Berries; Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Copper and Gold



I stamped & embossed the poinsettia & sentiment on watercolour paper, and then coloured it using distress inks & my water brush. After it dried I added more Festive Berries to intensify the colour. I also added Frantage EP to the centre, heated it, and smushed in some extra grains while it was still melty for added texture. Final step was flicking on some gold & copper splatters. 

I think I may have finally figured out a lamp set up that works for photos :) woot! 

xoxo,
Jessi
