Hi all - I'm hosting today's Scramble over at the Hero Arts Flickr group. If you're checking this out around 1 p.m. USA PST, it just started so come on over. It only lasts 90 minutes so if you're stopping by later than 2:30 PDT, you won't be able to play but you can check out the cards people created. For Scramble details, go here. If you're new to Scrambling, you get a theme and have 90 minutes to create, photograph, upload and post your card. Here are the sample cards I created for the Scramble using the theme Embossing Technique. I used two kinds of embossing - powder and folder, and yes - I did my cards within the established time limit :)
Card 1 uses Hero Arts Tall Flowers - a cling stamp I just love! I white powder embossed the flowers then colored them with various Distress Markers and shaded with Copics (C1 & C3).
On card 2 I used an embossing folder; this one is from Hero Arts/Sizzix and is patterned after the Hero Arts Magical Background cling stamp. I also embossed the sentiment using clear ep over some yummy Distress Ink. I just love the large script for the sentiments in Hero Arts clear set Fancy Basics!
What's your favorite embossing technique? Have you ever done the embossing with the little gold templates and the light box? I have a bunch of them but don't use them much - may have to pull them out again! Thanks for stopping!!
