background stamps, a few colour-coordinated powders, some pre-cut chipboard shapes and a few pieces of stampbord. I began with a rectangular base board and smooched it with distress inks, then set it aside.
clear, ultra thick embossing powder. This means you don't have to use as much of your pretty colours to get the depth you need!!
versamark, or gold ink, then pressed into the hot embossing powder. A few seconds later, they could be lifted, carefully, and the wonderful indentations and patterns became obvious... joyous moments, each time!!
Inca Gold copper and gold pastes, then set them out in the order I had decided upon... Got to love my new crafting gloves for poorly arthritic paws, eh!!!??
And there we have it - a jewel-like wall hanging, which glows in the sunshine, and is full of delicious texture and pattern.
dots background stamp and a screw- head brad. I made 4, 1 for each corner.
ornate plate adorned with buttons, beads and a tiny grunge paper rose.
gears and caligraphy background stamps. Also the time and keys plate.
grid background stamped with gold. I love the texture where the hot UTEE has bubbled passed the grid marks!!
And this is the complete piece. It is very pleasing to look at, in real life, because of the texture and deep jewel colours, even if a couple of the shapes look a bit like chocky biccies!!
I hope you have enjoyed looking how this project was made?? If so, please leave a comment. I also hope that not too many of you think I have taught you to suck eggs!! But I often hear people saying that triple embossing is hard to do/understand. Doing small fragments helps you to have a go without being worried about it!!!
Next time I see you here, it will be with my final piece as your guest designer, so have fun until then.
Love and light
