Why not try something new?

It's Sunday evening and time for a new Amuse Studio Challenge Blog Challenge.  This week's challenge is from Carla, and boy does she like embossing powder!  This week it's ultra thick embossing.  Here is my card:

Here's how I did it:

First I stamped a square using versamark, I sprinkled it in white embossing powder, heat set and then immediately sprinkled with more embossing powder.  I repeated the last two steps 4 times until I had a smooth, tile-like, shiny surface.  Immediately after the last heat setting, I stamped the shell in latte, pressing harder than I would normal to get an impression as well as the inked image.  Here is a close up:

I then mounted it onto a shell base card (measuring 4 1/4" x 4 1/4") using super sticky tape, added a ribbon and there you are - not my normal style, but well worth the effort - even without stamping the image, I love the change in the texture of the embossed area as you add the extra layers.  Definitely one for the tool chest. I heartly encourage you to have a go, and then why not post it on the challenge blog.

The supplies for this card are all from Amuse Studio
