The Male Challenge #130 – Use Embossing

TMR 130

Hello friends!

I’s been a while since my last post and with a good reason. I didn’t have a working computer for almost 3 weeks and wasn’t able to add blog posts for my cards, but I am happy to say things are finally back to normal now πŸ™‚

Today I am sharing a card for the newest challenge #130 – Use Embossing – at The Male Room.Β 


We have a wonderful guest designer Angie joining us for this fun challenge! Take a peek at her awesome card and blog post HERE.

Now lets get to the card I have made for this challenge.

I was shuffling through my embossing folders and no ideas were coming, so I decided create a card and heat emboss the sentiment.

For my card I used stamps from Rubbernecker stamps. I used 3010 Dogs 1 and 3015 Dogs 2, 1231 Splatter Background for the ground and 4011 Clouds Stencil.

I masked the images created a one layered scene and colored them with alcohol markers. I used Cloud stencil and Salty Ocean distress ink for the sky.

Once the scene was completed I heat embossed the sentiments using VersaFine Onyx black ink and clear embossing powder. I never had luck with black embossing powder so I found this to be the best way to add black embossing to any of my projects.

Finally I added the red frame and my card was finished.

I really hope you like today’s card and got inspired to join us for this fun challenge.

Don’t forget, you can created any paper project as long as it’s suitable for a male – card, tag, bookmark, layout etc. and you can add embossing any was you like – embossing folder, emboss with a die or stencil, heat embossing are all fun possibilities πŸ™‚

Thank you for stopping by today and I wish you all Happy Crafting!
