I still love embossing

It is an oldie but a goody. It has maximum impact for minimal effort. It has so many applications and so many different techniques can be dome with it. I love embossing!!
This blue flourish is cuttlebug embossing then gently wiped with the embossing ink pad (so it only hits the high points) and the gold embossing powder sprinkled and then cooked!  This is my big boy when he was about 28 months old (he's turning 12 this year!).
The close up of the butterfly shows the effect of stamping in to UTEE. I used TA Glimmer Mist on the naked chipboard butterflies, then covered them in embossing ink sprinkled UTEE on them and cooked it. While it was molten I add more UTEE and cooked it until the butterfly had a really nice thick layer. Then on the last round, again, while the UTEE was still molten I pressed into it with a rubber stamp that I had inked up with the Stazon Metallic Gold Ink. Another thing that I love! MMmmmmmmmm Stazon Metallics... Yum!
I don't usually complain, but I must say that I don't think the colours in this have shown up pretty badly, maybe a look IRL would be better. Feel free to drop by the store and have a look sometime!!
Take care of each other,
see you soon.
