Embossed Effects

Aged Hunter Green emb.powder
The detail of the Aged Powders has really workd well with these stamp.  The tree is by Hobby art - available on cling now.  And here is St Nick - again in Scarlet!   I have added a background of "PONDEROSA PINE" (Magenta) printed in Versafine Vintage Sepia for a varied textured background.  The wired Gold ribbon bow matches the Gold layering that brings out the little glimpse of gold in the Aged powders perfectly.
Aged Scarlet St Nick - again!
Aged Aqua Poinsettia
This New Clear set by Woodware has stamped really well with these Aged powders - again.  This Aqua is a lovely shade - so I have set it off with gems from an asst pk in my "stash".   Add a lovely sentiment (Hoby Art) and an Organza bow - the job is done!
Using 2 colours of embossing powder
Stampendous make some lovely sets of powders - 5 in a box for around £9.  This set is called MERLOT - Wild Plum, Pomegranite, Grape, Lettuce & Mushroom!  On the pink card I have used Grape and Wild Plum for the tree and for the message (By Stampendous).  On the purple card I have used Lettuce and Grape for the tree and themessage (Hobby Art). Layer to match and trim corners using a large corner punch for a different look - these make very simple cards for anyone who wants to practise their embossing and have a bit of fun with colours!

SATURDAYS DEMO IS ON "ENAMELLING" - 10.30 til 3.30 at JAPONICA - Exmouth.
