Emboss It...

This week on MAWTT its a Technique!!! Red has chosen to do Embossing. (it can either be Heat or Dry or both!!!)
I went for heat embossing and my burnt thumb can vouch for that!!!! The Clue is in the name "Heat Gun". Oopsies. Not quick enough moving my thumb away!!!
Pop over and see what the Rest of the Design Team did. I couldn't use Sponsor papers as my printer has been poorly :( 
We are sponsored by Bearly Mine  who are giving our winner a £10.00 Voucher to spend instore there. 
My project was a 2 x 2 Canvas. I first of all painted it with poster paints, then embossed the top of it 3 times with clear embossing powder. Next with my final layer I added some silver embossing powder too. This made for the stars. (im thinking that UTEE would have been better and quicker but hey ho used what I had)
I then used my fabby Tardis stamp and shrink plastic to make it look like the Tardis was shooting through time and space (Im a Geek!!!!) Tom loves it!!! Oh talking of Doctor Who, wasnt last Saturdays a brilliant episode ! Oh the end made me gasp. John Hurt is brilliant!!!
