Embossing Techniques: Letter "H"

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team decided to revisit the fantastic book that Stampendous owner Fran Seiford has written, called Embossing Techniques from A-Z. This book has so many awesome ideas, we needed to share some more with you. I decided to do letter "H" this time around.


I used the Tiny House Wagon stamp, along with the Growing Tree stamp. I'm not going to tell you what I did though....you need to get Fran's book for that! But I will show you a close up. ;)

I added some lace to the edge, and I inked it with some VersaFine ink from Imagine Crafts.

My background was done with a mess of different sprays, and then I inked the Quatrefoil Stencil on top by using a sponge dauber and Bronze Burst Delicata ink. It's subtle, but you can see it in the above photo. I also addeda button and some pretty olive green May Arts ribbon. Below are all of the ladies posting projects today. Please be sure to visit them all. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
