CCEE Stampers Challenge

This week Charlene Merrick, our hostess at CCEE Stampers for the month, asked that we use vellum and do either dry or heat embossing. As you can see, I am doing the heat embossing. I stamped my image with VersaMark and used white embossing powder. I wanted a soft look so I turned my vellum over to the back side and colored my image. I really like this technique.

Hope you'll join us this week for this fun challenge. Check out the rest of the awesome team's work
here.

Paper: PTI white cs, designer paper is unknown but is double sided

Your white embossed pink tulips are so pretty, Brenda! I love this technique/look, too, and you did a fabulous job. A pretty Spring-like card!

Beautiful and elegant card, Benz! I love the coloring of the tulips - lovely - and your flower is gorgeous too!

I'm glad I've finally found you, even though my broadband is now atrocious and it took ages to load the photo it was worth waiting for. I always admire white embossing, too chicken to do it often as I always get stray powder no matter what.
