DV #141 Embossing Wet or Dry

Our challenge today at Dream Valley is embossing. You can use wet embossing or dry. We are sponsored by the fabulous Live and Love Crafts.

DV 141 Embossing

I chose wet embossing. My stamps are mostly from Paper Artsy, the flowers and butterflies are the new Kay Carley set EKC03 and the words are from JOFY 11. I stamped with versafine and embossed with clear detail powder, and then watercoloured using my lovely new Prima Watercolour Confections! I used Tropicals, Classics and also Decadent Pies. They are fabulous paints, just the merest touch of water brings them to live and the pigments seem really rich. I have no idea about their lightfast properties, or indeed what colours they actually are as Prima have not bothered to put this on the packaging, nor on their website. They come in a funky little tin with two fold out mixing palettes, and even a thumb ring to hold them with if you were using them outside.

I also made a border with Leonie Pujol’s lovely border stamps, and then added glitter glue to lots of the accents on the flowers and butterflies. It’s matted onto some pink mirri.

I am entering this into:-
