Getting messy

I'm always up for trying a new technique, and getting a bit messy. This month's Focus On Techniques challenge at Practical Scrappers was no exception. The technique we were tackling we're calling "double" embossing. The original technique is to cover your base paper with Versamark, or an embossing ink, and then with an embossing powder. Once heated, then dry emboss using an embossing folder, and sand to distress.

You know me, I can't follow the rules. ( Well I can, but it's just not as much fun!)
So I dry embossed first, hit the high areas with Top Boss, and then sprinkled on the embossing powder. Once heated, I used Glimmer mists, and a bit of Inca Gold by Viva Decor to distress the background. Definitely lots of fun, and worth playing with again!

Have a great week-end!
