Hello everyone!! It my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast and I have a fun and easy challenge this week....we are going to dry emboss and sand on patterned paper!! How easy is that!!!
Here are the deets:
1. Use any designer paper and any embossing folder you want (just don't use card stock). If you don't have any patterned paper, use a page from an old book, copy of a picture, or a page from a magazine or newspaper.
2. After dry embossing your paper, gently sand the raised part with a sanding block, emory board, or even a piece of a brown paper bag (a brown paper bag is the the best soft sanding tool you will find!!)
3. If you can't find the right folder you can score on the designer paper but remember to sand the raised
part. The sanding adds a little distressing and dimension.
4. Use the embossed paper anywhere on your project and be sure to have fun!!!
My card features dp from Bo Bunny's Sweet Tooth..it has a faint pattern to it, however, with the embossing and sanding it kinda disappeared!! The dress form is from Darcie's Create set and the sentiment which was stamped on a Die-namic's sentiment shape is from Crafty Secret's Girlfriend's set. The doily die cut, twine, and buttons finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the TLC gallery for lots of inspiration!! I would love to see your creation there, too!!! Have a great day and Happy stamping!!!
