It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC71)! This week Cindy Haffner is our challenge host and she is challenging us to embossing. There are a lot of different types of embossing options to choose from, such as heat, stencil, plates, folders, scoring, textured die cuts, and more. In addition, there are many different techniques to combined with embossing. You can also use anything from vellum, clear card stock, or other textures for your embossed projects. We would love to see what you all create.
Fun stuff, embossing! I love it! So, I was literally looking around for some inspiration when I saw what the SCS inspiration challenge for this week is: Roses and Teacups. I chose these gorgeous porcelain cameos for my inspiration and SCS Sketch #284 for my layout and I was on my way!
First, I made my "frame". I embossed Flourishes' Damask Background on a piece of patterned paper from K & C0., Madeline 6 x 6 pad. First I stamped it with Encore gold ink then heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, and cut/embossed with a Scalloped Classic Oval Nestabilities die. The focal image, from A Year In Flowers, Set 2, was stamped on Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers. A pink moire bow and some gold flat back pearls finish it off. My base card is Soft Suede and each patterned paper element is matted with gold metallic card stock.
Thanks for dropping by today! I hope you'll play along--can't wait to see your embossed creations! Be sure to check out the rest of the FTTC team for inspiration!
