Hi there everyone; I told you I had an announcement, didn't I? So, there it is, I was asked by Jill at The Stamp Man a little while ago, if I would consider joining their Design Team; well what's there to consider really? So of course I said YES and they responded by tossing me in at the deep end by telling me I would start by hosting this weeks challenge! So I am now officially on the design team!
So, here's to working with you guys...... I am looking forward to it and just hope I can keep up!
Onto this week then where we are talking embossing, now I love embossing so had fun with this. I could not make my mind up so I used both dry and triple embossing to alter this memo block, taking it from this.....
Firstly I took a sheet of paper that I had altered with Moonshadow inks in beautiful gold,walnut and emerald, cut to size and ran through the Tim Holtz Embossing folder (Circles) and attached to the sides.
For the top I stamped the old world globe image onto a piece of the paper and embossed with Hollyberry red embossing powder. I then attached to the lid . All the edges were painted with black acrylic paint and some drybrushed over the raised embossing on the sides.
I then used clear UTEE on the top twice (And on the second one sprinked a bit of the red powder on too)
before stamping the old world stamp into it while still hot.
I stamped the ship from the same Nautical set onto frosted clear shrink plastic, lightly coloured with aged mahogony Distress ink and heat shrank it and attached to the front.
The other design team members have done some amazing work so there's loads to inspire.........
See you there
Be blessed in your art today
