TSG80 - Wet Embossing

There are several techniques that are essential for stampers to have in their arsenal, and this week Corinna wants us to make sure that wet embossing is one of them! Pull out your heat gun along with some embossing powders and get busy! You can emboss a solid image on your creation, emboss an outlined image and watercolor it, or showcase another wet embossing technique…your choices are endless!

On my card, I clear embossed the butterflies from the Poppies set, as well as the beautiful pattern from Wonderful Winter Wishes. I know, it's hardly visible, so you have to take my word for that... lol



Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft; paper: Pink Pailsee (Parisian Anthology); stamps: There She Goes (Poppies, Wonderful Winter Wishes); ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa), ColorBox (Brick), Papertrey Ink (Chai); clear embossing powder; Copic markers; grosgrain ribbon; paper piercer; border punch: EK Success

My inspiration comes from this Vintage Butterflies card by my stamping buddy Tracy, who's this week's Featured Stamper at SCS (FS206). Also I took the colours from another great Mona's challenge - CR84FN11:
