Day 2 - Embossing Through

This is one of the techniques from Day 2 of T!m's CC102 class, it's called embossing through.  He used one of his new layered stencils combined with embossing powder and distress inks.  I used a circles stencil and salty ocean, broken china, vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks.  If you want to know more about the technique you'll have to buy into the class.

Stamped the umbrella man and row of birds in black archival.

Over at PanPastelUk this week they have a theme of water, so I'm entering my tag as I think the blue circles look like water especially as they have been embossed even though it doesn't show up so well on the photo.


and was also chosen as the random winner too, here.
