Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Embossing!

It's MONDAY!!! which means, we have a new theme set at...

and this week is Some Embossing!!!

I have incorporated both heat embossing and dry embossing!

The cover to my mini sketch book has been doubled distressed using Victorian velvet, aged mahogany, walnut stain and black soot distress inks. Using a gorgeous texture fade.

The leaf art part has distress stain and clear embossing powder.

The spine has been adorned with an array of different embellishments! All quite meaningful, the leaf back to my natural artist passion, the butterfly to learn to change, the pearl for keeping pure, the lock and key to unlock my skills and then imagination! Phew! far tooo deep for a Monday morning ha ha ha!

I have been holding hoarding onto these scrummy cotton rag art paper for ages it was so nice to make something I might use with them. I've used an old sizzix cheque book die, sorry not sure if you can find it now.

These embellishments are made using clear art film and Tim Holtz kraft resist card!

Then I created inked tabs along the edge using inspirational words.
So check out the goodies at...


And then why not pop round to the rest of the team's stunning projects!!!

Such a beautiful touch to your sketchbook. Embossing is on my todo list of things to learn. Currently on watercolours, crochet and knitting so a lot to do first... :(
