DCM weekly dare

This week at Daring Cardmakers
it is our Lythan's turn to dare us all
and this ones another Cool Dare
Embossing.Dry embossing with a light box or with a die cutting machine.Using embossing powders or triple embossing.Using pre-embossed papers.Embossing with found items.Just have fun playing!And as I can't resist being a little (em)bossy - why not see if you can get more than one emboss technique on your card?
And we are THRILLED to have another FABBY guest designer -
It's Leo.
Welcome to the Fun Leo :O)
so Here is my card, My embossing bits are the flowers, tag & 'cherish' word
for the flowers and the tag I used a technique I like to call 'grunge embossing' only cause I don't know what it's really called...
I just wiped them over with Versa Mark 'watermark' stamp pad, then lightly sprinked some black embossing powder on them before heat setting with my heat gun..
Bits I've used on my card are - Bazzill Cardstock, Crate Paper Printed Paper, Bazzill Basics really big paper clip, paper flowers, Biggie Brad, 7 Gypsies metal tab, Heidi Swap 'cherish' stamp,Scallop Ruler, Ribbon, Versa Mark watermark stamp pad, Black embossing powder, and my sewing machine...
So have you Dared to DARE yet?...Come on I dare you!!!

This is gorgeous Gillian, it's so rich and chocolately!

Grunse embossing is a good phrase and it looks effective. My own type of embossing is simply called "bad"

Angelnorth said...

I think grunge embossing is the perfect name :)

The card is beautiful Gillian, the grunging has made the flower look velvety and the whole thing looks really opulent - gorgeous!
