Master Forger's Embossing Challenge

Guest Designer: Helen

This was a great challenge because it's something I never do on a layout so it pushed me to do something different. I love stamping, but tend to do it on embellishments or cards - so here I tried doing it on the layout itself. The results were hard to photograph - here's hoping that you can see!

First I've used a watermark pen and clear embossing powder to highlight the lines of white dots on the wave paper and the swirls on the green. I have then used an Anna Griffin swirl stamp to recreate the water splashes from the photos. I stamped over the top of the papers and tags and embossed with more clear embossing powder. I really like the way that the glossy embossing changes the colour of the papers and it's always good to get more use out of those stamps!

There are some close-up photos over on my blog if you want to see more Can't wait to see all the great ideas from everyone else!
