I started out by spritzing an un-gessoed page in my 7x10 art journal page with Art Anthology Colour Sprays in Watermelon, Glorious, and Timeless...a lovely combination. While that was drying, I chose three different TH Alterations Texture Fades embossing folders: Riveted Metal, Diamond Plate; Gears. Three black #8 tags were embossed and the embossing highlighted with 4 colours of Inka Gold. The tags were overlapped and adhered to the sides using Scor tape.
Time for a little Studio 490 Black Embossing paste which was scraped across TCW's Mini Specimens and Tiny Circles stencils with a palette knife. Once the embossing paste was dry, white gesso was pounced through TCW's Sketch Grid with a scruffy brush.
The silhouette was cut from black cardstock using an image from the computer. Text was stamped randomly with Versamark and clear embossed. The butterfly wings were cut from a piece of designer paper which already has some glittery embossing on it. Once it was glued to the back of the silhouette, both were popped up on foam tape for added dimension.
The clock was a leftover from some Bo Bunny journalling tags from my stash which was embossed with Wendy Vecchi's Mesh Background stamp, versamark and Black embossing powder. It was then matted in black cardstock. The clock hands were created with two of my favourite Idea-ology embellies, pen nibs. The other metal clocks came from my stash and were adhered to the page with Glossy Accents.
Most of the sentiment was computer generated and printed on white cardstock. To tone down the white and blend them with the background, they were stamped all over with Scattered Straw Distress ink and then edged with Worn Lipstick. They were then popped up on foam tape. The word, Dance, was created with Idea-ology Ransom Alpha parts as well as Alpha Tiles.
That's it for my foray into embossing for this August ePlay Challenge inspiration piece. I included wet embossing, dry embossing, Embossing Paste, and designer paper with embossing already there. You only have to include one type, although you are welcome to feature more if you want. Hope you'll join us for this challenge.
