Dragonflies


Today's challenge from Pattie's Creations is embossing - either wet or dry.  I've used this beautiful Dragonfly Stained Glass image and colored it with Copic markers.   The next step, since I really wanted it to look like stained glass was to cover the entire piece with Versamark and heat emboss clear embossing powder all over it.  This made the colors even more vibrant and it does look like stained glass with the sun streaming behind in in person.

Here's another photo so you can see a bit of the shine from the embossing powder.  Now it's your turn to use some embossing on your projects.  Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team's projects for even more inspiration.

Finally, be sure to visit Pattie's Esty store as there is a sale going on now, but hurry as it ends tomorrow, Sept 8.

Anne - Wow, now I can really see the embossing on the 2nd view photo! It's Beautiful! I guess I need to practice more with my new heat gun, and I did find that the photo paper I used did buckle a little bit from the heat. Next time I'll try regular cardstock to print and heat.
