Emboss It at Try it on Tuesday


Our new challenge at TioT this fortnight is all about Embossing , what kind of embossing is up to you.
I used texture paste through a Tim Holtz stencil on an ink blended background. When the paste was completely dry I replaced the stencil and coloured over the flowers using Oxide inks.
I added some die cut flowers coloured with Picked Raspberry, over a heat embossed A&C  topper and a heat embossed birthday sentiment to finish.
The rest of the team have been very creative with their embossing, so please pop over to TioT's where you will find all the challenge details.
 Extra Grandma duties lately have kept me out of the craft room and at almost three and a half, the twins are so full of energy and curiosity I'm exhausted when they go home, but I wouldn't change anything, not even the finger prodding my nose at 6.30 on a Wednesday morning to wake me up after Tuesday's sleepover!
Thanks for calling in,
Avril x

The texture paste with the colour paid over looks really beautiful Avril, I've never tried it that way, usually spray over, but will certainly give it a go as it achieved such a soft finish.

This is a gorgeous spring card Avril. I love the idea of embossing with texture paste. I don't know why I didn't think of that one. :) Hope all is well with you. hugs-Erika
