SYC: Embossing!

This month the challenge at SYC is to make a project with embossing! It can be dry and/or heat embossing. I chose to use heat embossing and a bit of resist with mists. I stamped the Lawn Fawn Chevrons in Versa Mark, sprinkled some clear embossing powder over it, tapped off the excess, and heat with my heat tool. Once cooled I spritzed October Afternoon's Art Box mists over it and dabbed off the excess that pooled on top of the embossing. Then I unscrewed the mist's caps and sprinkled and splattered some more of the paint. I also misted the Studio Calico wooden cameras with the white mist and dried with my heat gun. The tags were really cool and had that vintage carbon underneath to make an impression copy of my handwriting. Once I was done with the writing I smudged the carbon into the tag some more for extra vintage goodness. Reminded me of when I was a kid in the late 80's and used to play in my mom's office. I attached the tags with my tiny attacher and some ATG glue. Finished it off with the Instagram Stamp included in the Adventure stamp set from Studio Calico stamped on some Lawn Fawn paper and punched out. My pictures are from Postagram for Instagram and I just adore them! If you click through my link: you'll get five Postagrams free!!
