My Mum's Craft Shop-Emboss, Emboss, Emboss!





Our DT theme this week is embossing. Our sponsor, My Mum's Craft Shop, is wanting to see your embossed entries! I love dry embossing...it's a big impact for mere seconds of work.

Yeah...I'm lazy.

But I think it's also fun to make embossing the main part of your card, when possible. Here, I used SU! Soft Suede paper and took Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and stamped randomly with my blending tool. Then, I ran it through my Big Shot using Cuttlebug's Tiny Mosaic EF. Taking VersaMark and rubbing it over the top, I then put clear embossing powder all over it and heat embossed for that shiny, leather-like look. After that, it was 2 leather thongs knotted and topped with a western style brad, underneath a Copic colored pic from my SU! Wild, Wild, West set and I've got a bang up look, people!! Again....easy.

Oh, Lord-this lazy thing is working out WAY too well!

Head on over to Through the Purple Haze blog and enter to win!
