AYLI Embossing

Hellooo everyone. It's time for your fortnightly conundrum from 


... this time it's EMBOSSING, dry or heat we don't mind!!

For me it has to be heat embossing as I find the melting process magical, even after many years of doing it, and I love the silky smooth feel of the image once it has cooled.


While I was sorting my stamps last week I found a Sheena Douglass set that was free with a magazine so used that for my card today. Heat embossed with a white powder and then I simply inked a background. I should do this more often as it was really therapeutic .



I couldn't leave without showing you my little helper, Bumble, photobombing or should that be
 photo Bumbling!! It was just as well Bowie was bird watching at the time otherwise the card might have been in danger of being squished!!

I hope you will manage to join in.

See you soon xx

I thought I recognised that stamp! It works really well with a washed sunset background, there have certainly been a lot of those recently.
We are still contemplating cutting hay, it's all down our friend who has the cutter as ours is only really a topper. Last year was the first time we hadn't made hay, the weather turned and it had to be wrapped. :( . Lots of fields around are cut awaiting throwing out so perhaps he nay come sometime this week! :)
