Emboss it - Sweet Stampin' DT

Good morning all!

Another Saturday, another challenge over at Sweet Stampin'. And this week our theme is Emboss it.

You can heat emboss, or dry emboss, it's up to you. I chose to heat emboss, and my Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder had just arrived and was sitting on my desk begging to be used.
So I inked up a background, and heat embossed a LOTV steampunk background stamp I've had since I started stamping and never gotten 'round to using. (Hey look, more NBUS!)
I added a few more TH goodies, et voila:

It's a little hard to tell from the photo, but the embossed background looks really rusty in person. I loooove the effect!

Now my fellow Sweeties have made some fabulous cards, so I hope you'll go and take a peek, and maybe come and join us with an embossed project yourself? Just don't forget to stamp!

Have a fantastic weekend!

A super masculine creation Sammy and your inking is very effective with the orange glowing through.

Have a good weekend.

The background has a lovely patina, so I will have to look out for some of this EP...I don't do a lot of TH stuff, so don't always know what the products will do. This looks great with your vintage and I like the rustic look of the sentiment treatment too. TFS & Happy Sunday.
