I'm scheduling this post to pop up tomorrow while I'm at work as there are some fab new darice embossing folders being released. There are 33 in total and there are some fabulous designs, well they are all fabulous and i really don't know how you are going to choose which ones you NEED, as the design team have done a fab job. They will all be posting too and there are some stunner's i can tell you.
My first one is using the key design and I'm still in a bit of a messy crafter mood so the distress inks came out again. I was an absolute mess yesterday at the demo at Strikes Stokesley but had fun and everyone was interested in all the techniques i used with spectrum's, stamps and embossing folders. I've used cut and dry foam to add the ink to the reverse of a piece of centura pearl card and just blended the colours together in circular motions. So for this one i have used the key design folder. The distress inks used are pumice stone, Victorian velvet and aged mahogany before putting the piece of card through my ebosser. After the pattern was embossed i then highlighted the raised keys with frayed burlap to enhance them. Then i have used a sentiment from one of Sheena's last stamp sets and embossed in copper embossing powder I've added a little bit of stunning lace i found in my ribbon drawer and then i only had a silver key so i used the same embossing powder as i used for the sentiment to alter its colour.
