Lawnscaping Challenge, embossing.

Pin It

The current Lawnscaping challenge is using either wet or dry embossing on a paper project. I chose to use wet heat embossing. I used black embossing powder on the fence, the bats, and the house. I used Distress walnut embossing powder for the tree. The Lawn Fawn stamp sets I used were: Happy Haunting, Harvest Season, and Heebie Jeebies.

I distressed the night sky on the card with Tim Holt'z foam applicator tool using four different Tim Holtz distress inks (concord grape, stormy sky, broken china, vintage photo) and two mists by Tattered Angles (sand and peacock). Everything but the fence and the tree trunk were stamped, cut, and paper pieced. The ghosts and the large bat have foam adhesive behind them.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out Lawnscaping Challenges if you're interested in all their awesome challenges that come with fabulous prizes!

Inky and glittery fingers for all,
