Simon Says Stamp and Show Embossing

The challenge is to show embossing at Simon Says Stamp and Show.


I had the most fun creating the background using Artistic Outpost stamps.  I started with stamping the ledger using Vintage Photo leaving the ink uneven.  Added some perfect pearls mister and vintage photo mixed and created ring marks.  Then the postcard with postage image using vintage photo.  Sponged the edges with the vintage photo.

The circles contain images from Home and the Outpost. Embossed with clear embossing powder to highlight the colors.

The stamps are from Artistic Outpost Ephemeral Backgrounds, The Outpost, Home.

Inks are: Vintage Photo, Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge.

Thanks for stopping by!
