Ultra Thick Embossing

This is a card made as a demonstration sample last month when I was using embossing powders and inks.  The background was a piece of white card sponged using Distress inks and with some over-stamping.  The puzzle piece was from a charity shop buy (child's large piece puzzle) - a piece had some gesso applied to cover up the bright coloured picture; this was then coloured with DI and stamped with a leafy design before being triple embossed using clear UTEE.  I hope the person who receives this doesn't think the words are badly stamped - the actual stamp has this grungy effect!!

I hope the weather is good where you are because here it is grey and wet which makes me really pleased that I forced myself to mow the lawns yesterday - almost a hay making job as the grass had grown so long.

Background - Distress inks
Stamps - freebies given with a magazine
