Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - Emboss It!!

Happy Friday!! Are any of you snowed or iced in?? We got a little snow and ice, but not the amounts they predicted (thank goodness!!) I have an exciting weekend planned...my Dylusions sprays arrived so I'll be getting inky all weekend :)


Friday means a Fun Friday challenge at Little Scrap Pieces!! I'm sponsoring this week's challenge, so I hope you will all play along!! The theme is Emboss It...it can either be wet or dry embossing.


I was feeling grungy in my craft room, so I pulled out my Tim Holtz supplies and started playing :) The base of the card is black cardstock from The Paper Studio. The Kraft paper is also from TPS, and it was embossed with the Spellbinders Bricks and Bark embossing folder. It was then inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Walnut Distress Inks. The edges were distressed with a Zutter Distress-It-All and then inked with Black Soot for a burned look. A Foil Tape Sheet from Ranger was applied to heavy weight cardstock from Canvas Corp., and then embossed with the Tim Holtz Subway embossing folder (love this folder!!). Black acrylic paint was applied to the embossed foil and after a few minutes, wiped off the embossing. TH Tarnished Brass Distress Ink was then applied to the raised letters and wiped off for a grungy look. The awesome skittles are from my sweet friend Carri of DoubleClick - AKA ABusyBee :)


The tag is a TH Tiny Tabs & Tags die. The sentiment is from TH's Just Thoughts stamp set. It was stamped with black Ranger Archival Ink in and then heat embossed with TH Black Soot Embossing Powder. The tag was inked with Vintage Photo distress ink and then crumpled. The ridges were inked with Walnut distress ink and then it was flattened out. The edges were inked with Black Soot. The flower is a TH's Metal Foliage flower. The tag was attached with foam tape for dimension. The TH Metal Word Band was inked with black acrylic paint and wiped off so it stayed in the crevices. It's hard to read from this angle but it says: The journey awakens the soul. The hemp fiber is from Michaels.

I could hear Nirvana or Pearl Jam in the background when you said you were feeling a little grungy! I LOVE this. I went to NYC a couple years ago and this cool card really reminded me of some of the cool things I saw while was there.
