The Stamp Man Challenge # 20 - Embossing

I thought I would have a go at this challenge. I have visited The Stamp Man every time I have been in Skipton and I love Jill's work.
First I had a play with triple embossing. I built up several layers of embossing powders and then inked up a stamp with gold and stamping into the melted powder. I decided to use the oriental dragon as I haven't done anything oriental for a while.

I used 3 types of embossing in the finished card 
  • Triple embossed dragon tile
  • Normal embossing for the oriental script at the base of the card and
  • The Cuttlebug bamboo embossing folder for the background.
 I also was keen to try out my new Tim Holtz Alteration Mini Paper Rosettes die. I thought the fan type folding would fit the theme.

Have a good day. The weather is glorious up here in Scotland, so I am away to take the dogs out then get some more gardening done.

    I used a punch. It's a Maidenhair punch by Leon-M, I used to buy them from Woodware.
    Saw your entry on the Crafty Individuals challenge - very nice. I love that bird tile stamp.
