Embrace the Embossabilities



It's time to play along with the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers again!  Our latest and greatest challenge is E is for Embossing.  You can emboss your favorite way, with a folder,  or with a heat tool and  embossing powder. To join in all you need to do is include embossing (if you can serve your embossing up with a side of snark, even better)!

I went with heat embossing on my altered playing card.  First I used clear gesso on the card, heat embossed and finally painted the card and rubbed the paint off from the embossed areas. I also added a bit of ink to tone down the bright blues.  The background paper was first painted, then embossed, then painted in black.

My gentleman is from Tumble Fish Studios and the brilliant words are from Lisa's Altered Art.

Wanna play along and join the Sisterhood?? Of course you do...
You have until 11:55 pm EDT on Friday April 29 to upload your project on the Sisterhood homepage.   Please take a look at what my Snarky Sisters and our guest designer, Jane, have made for you this challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

I really liked my card and thought I would enter these challenges:
