ATC Swap - Embossing


Hi friends, happy Monday.......gosh, these weeks sure are flying past!
Hope you're all well & had a lovely weekend. Me? Had lots planned but Mr Mojo
 took himself off for a little break.....hope it's only a short one lol. So today I'm 
sharing my makes for my ATC Swap club....the theme for July was to use
 embossing - wet, dry or even both! 
I started by laying down some colour with my Caran d'Ache water soluble 
 pastels (I LOVE these), I chose three colours then used a damp brush to blend
 them a little then took a wad of kitchen roll to blot them as I wanted it to look 
a little patchy, once dry I stamped the script......added some embossing powder
 then used my heat gun to set it. I added a die cut of a feather & ink then 
edged the ATC with black ink for a bit of definition.
So that's it from me for today....thanks for calling & whatever you're up to....
....hope you manage a little crafty time!
xx
