Winter Wonderland - This weeks its Embossing!

This weeks theme was chosen by our fabbie team mate Avril who would like to see Embossing on your project - any sort of embossing so go with whatever you like to do best!

Heat embossing is one of my favourite techniques - there is such a thrill about watching the powder melt and become something beautiful right before your eyes . This is a fab stamp and works really well with embossing. I picked it up at a second hand sale a couple of years ago and it has been used every year since! Ive gone for a gold on black look - then matted onto gold card then onto a card blank which has been covered with vellum, with gold swirls on it. The card blank is by papermania and is a black scalloped edge one. Ive edged the vellum in gold ink before attaching it to the card using black and gold organza ribbon.

Our challenge is sponsored this week by Card Mad Fairy
who is offering 3 digi images to the lucky randomly chosen winner Brilliant!
We are having a change of challenge day over at Winter Wonderland so this challenge runs until the 22nd April then we launch the new challenge on Friday the 23rd - so heaps of time for you to play this time.

Dont forget my blog candy! Just enter one week of the WW challenge and follow the other requests and it could be won by you!

Have a great day x Janet
