When I saw these challenges I had to give it a try:
A Blog Named Hero #44 - (em)Boss
Make it Monday #166 - deboss stamped images
The Friday Mashup - a tree or embossing or both
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Debossed the Mighty Oak from Papertrey onto watercolor paper. Die cut a mask from vellum and put it over the tree trunk using temporary adhesive. Splattered the heck out of it with greens and a blue Distress Inks. Mopped up excess ink with scrap paper and used a strip of it behind the focal image.
Tried to get a good photo and failed. Here is a close-up which shows the debossing.
Off to hook up. Thanks for looking.
Supplies for with sympathy:
Paper: CS Bringmann, watercolor paper
