TLC743 ~ Emboss Emboss ~ {5/20/19}
Hi Friends! Happy Monday!

I love opportunities to stretch my embossing folders as you know so today I have a fun (I think :)) challenge for you using wet (heat) embossing on your dry embossing (embossing folder)...

This technique creates a grungy look and if you choose metallic embossing powder, it looks a bit like veins of metal in the card. You can use any embossing powder though! For my card today, I inked over my embossing but you don't have to. There are very few rules to this technique but I do suggest a busier (less white space) embossing folder.

I created a video to try to better explain the technique - I hope it helps :)

I hope you are inspired and have fun trying this! I can't wait to see your projects!


Here are the Details for today's challenge:

Thanks Lyn! Looks like fun so I'll give it a try tomorrow! Getting ready for bed now so I hope I can sleep now that I've seen this! My mind wants to do it tonight, but my body says get some sleep and it will be better in the daylight!

Looks like a lot of fun!

I really like the added effect of sponging! I know I've tried it without, when TexasGrammy/Bev did a tutorial for the Inkling some years ago, but I'll hope to get time tomorrow to try it with. Thanks, Lyn.

Love this technique and did this at a recent craft group....card in my gallery. Going to have another play and this time use the distress inks. Thanks for the challenge.

I've never done this technique before. I added the inking as well. Here's my card.

A little late, I enjoyed doing this technique even though I went off plan but it turned out fine in the end.
