Hello!  Hope your week is going well.  I'm popping in with a card that I made for this week's PTI Make it Monday:  dry embossing over heat embossing.   Every week I check out the new MIM video and every week I think to myself that I will try to make something and then it never happens.  So I decided to make sure that this week I did get a project made!  I'm also posting this to the current Less is More challenge since the colors I used are decidedly autumnal.


I pulled out my Beautiful Brushstrokes set and stamped the largest flower using SU!'s So Saffron for the base layer and Pumpkin Pie for the next.  The final layer of the image was stamped using VersaMark watermark ink, gold embossing powder applied and then heat set.  I followed the same steps for the leaves and stems.  The sentiment was also stamped in VersaMark, black embossing powder applied and heat set.  Once everything was heat embossed I ran the entire piece through my Big Shot using the PTI quatrefoil cover plate.  The piece was adhered to the card base and a few of the rain drops from the Beautiful Brushstrokes kit were adhered.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft and white; Stamps and dies:  PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up!, VersaMark; Embossing powders:  Ranger gold and Filigree black; rain drops

Hello Rosie,
Gorgeous stamp and you have embossed it beautifully what makes the flower is those added raindrops.
