Wow, this is my first post for the Let's Ink It Up challenge blog and I am very nervous. There is some amazing talent and fabulous creativity in this new team I am part of and oh boy, you just gotta go take a look at what Team A have made to inspire you, and team B will be there for the second challenge on the 20th March, Australian time that is.
The theme this fortnight is 'Embossing' and I really struggled with this one, just because I wanted to make something special. I am quite pleased with the outcome, but it took me too long to make and too many attempts at different bits of it that I lost my excitement for it.
You will see I have used both dry and heat embossing and I have taken pics to show you these two techniques.
