Inspirational #125: - Emboss It!
Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, June 25th, at 11:59 PM US Central time.
Drea here hosting this week's Inspirational! Our theme this week is all about embossing!
For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.
Embossing is a great way to really enhance your stamping and give it some extra dimension and texture! So break out your stamps and embossing powders! I sure did with this vintage layout I made of my late Great Grandmother.
I used Palette Ink (Burnt Sienna) to stamp the Victorian Vines Background onto the banners, and to stamp the date using Mini-Bet. I used Distress embossing powder (Walnut Stain) for the title using Distressed Typewriter Bet. I used white embossing powder on the small flowers using Pressed Flowers. The rest of the embossing was done with Distress embossing powder (Vintage Photo) using Nothing is Better for the sunflowers, Reinforcers for the tag, and Bold Flourishes for the flourishes that I embossed onto light blue vellum. I also used Distress embossing powder (Broken China) on the brads on the small flowers and the eyelets, which I laced with rope inked with Palette Ink (Burnt Sienna).
Lynda created these quick and easy end of the school year bookmarks featuring the Lotsa Dotsa stamp set:
her daughter wrote her name and phone number on the back of them and gave them to friends she wanted to stay in touch with over the summer months.
I hope your are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline! We look forward to seeing what you create!!
