Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Emboss It!


Hello!  It’s Wednesday which means a fab new challenge over at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge blog.  The theme of this week’s challenge is EMBOSS IT! 


Can’t wait to see all the different ways to use embossing – heating embossing powders, using pastes and texture mediums or good old fashioned dry embossing!

For my card this week I used both heat embossing (for the flower image) and embossing paste (on the chicken wire stencil).  I stamped the orchid from Clearly Besotted Stamps Thinking of You in Versamark then heat embossed in WOW! Bright White ep.  I coloured the image using distress ink pads as water colours.  The chicken wire effect was created using a The Crafters Workshop stencil and Dreamweaver embossing paste in white.


And as always, the AMAZINGLY generous peeps at Simon Says Stamp always love to reward your efforts with an awesome $50 gift voucher for one one lucky, randomly drawn participant!  Yay!!

Happy crafting!!!
