BSS MONDAY IDEA - Emboss Your Embossing

It's my post for my local stamp store, Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.

Today's idea is to Emboss your Embossing.
That is, emboss card stock with an embossing folder, lightly rub over the
entire piece with a pigment pad, or a Versamark pad.  Use clear embossing powder over an ink color, or colored embossing over Versamark watermark pad.

Use as a mat for an image as I did,  or cut with a die cut to go with an image.


What I used on this card:

Stamp - Popcorn The Bear
Die - Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles Sm
Cuddlebug Embossing Folder
Yellow dotted swiss ribbon
Colored with Copic Markers
Stickles - Crystal
Brilliance - Dew Drop Sky Blue
Clear Embossing Powder

This is a fun technique and the results are great!

Hope you have a chance to try it.

Happy Independence Day!  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later...........
