ATC - Craft Stamper challenge 3
I have been dithering for a while about entering the Craft Stamper challenge, using the embossing powder background technique. Tomorow is the closing date, so I have taken the plunge :-)
I swiped an ATC blank with versamark and applied embossing powder in four shades of blue and aqua. Then I overstamped the bubbles background (Lost Coast Designs) using detail white embossing powder. The Hero Arts tree stamp - used in sections - makes an interesting, almost seaweed-y effect, embossed in the darkest shade of blue. Finally I stamped the Prima sentiment using black Stazon.
The ATC is actually straight along all sides - the photo has exaggerated the slight warping caused by the multiple embossing!
I like this technique, it's a little fiddly, but the results are very effective :-)
EDIT 5/8: Craft Stamper chose this project for the Top Three!!!! I am so thrilled :-)
