How Old Would You Be/ Courage

Robyn here with my copy cat hat on!
 I'm beginning to get dependent on Holly's Technique of the Month to jumpstart my creativity.!
How does she think up these techniques??
This month's double layer embossing is here.

My first card I just shamelessly copied!

I embossed two sheets with Spellbinders Letter and Numbers embossing folder.
Following Holly's instructions, I  painted the numbers with watercolors and pressed out most of the emboss, matted and glue dotted it all together .

The quote is stamped with VersaFine Sepia, thermal embossed clear on Spellbinders Labels 25- a perfect fit! and colorized using the die as a stencil.

For the next card I added some and took some away!
Using the same folder, I cut one out of Spellbinders Dahlia ,and putting it back in the folder, brayered VersaMark on the high points and thermal embossed clear. Then I sprayed a bunch of stuff , and inked up the die cut till I was happy, and then ironed it between two pieces of clean paper till all of the embossing was removed and most of the emboss was flattened.

The quote is stamped on tracing paper and glued on with Glossy Accents so I can see what is going on underneath!

A new embossing folder ! 
This time I used both the front and the back side of the folder on my layers, with the folder inked up for a letterpress look that doesn't show in these photos.

I love how the lines merge where the layers meet!

The quote is stamped on Spellbinders Decorative Labels One, and I made a frame for the inside of the companion quote
and used the folder as a stamp for the background!

I hope you will give the stamps and techniques a try and post back to us so we can see what you are up too.

I'm thinking "nicely done" is a step up from "nice" ! LOL

Great use of a new technique. My fav is the dahlia inspired one. And tracing paper - who would thought........I thought I was looking at velum.

Holly said...

Wow Robyn- these are great! It makes my day when someone tries the techniques.
I subscribe to Technique Junkies, and took part in a huge technique swap a few years ago. This means, I have a huge collection of techniques. The fun for me is translating some of them to work with Quietfire Design product.
I like your technique of ironing off the embossing- I have one similar to it that you'd like.
Anyway, thanks Robyn- cool stuff!
