Vintage Style

Today we're wrapping up a week of showcasing projects created using Fran Seiford's new book Stampendous recently released, "Embossing Powder Techniques from A to Z?"  It's 100 pages of everything you will ever need to know about embossing!  Today I used technique H - Vintage Cracked Glass Embossing Powder Technique on page 27.  This technique is great for "instant aging" creating a vintage or mixed media look.  Don't forget, if you need a heat gun to try these embossing techniques, Stampendous now carries the Wagner Embossing Heat Tool.  This is the best heat tool on the market!  It efficiently melts even the thickest layer of embossing enamel.

Here's what I used to create this card:

Spectrum Aqua™ Markers in Essentials by Crafter's Companion®
Jet Black Ink Pad Archival Ink™ by Ranger®
Infinity Permanent Metallic Marker in Silver by The Write Dudes™
Mixed Media Paper by Strathmore®
Grasshopper Cardstock by My Colors®
Bo Bunny® 12" Gabriella Fairest Patterned Paper
Bo Bunny® 12" Ambrosia Flowers Patterned Paper
Gathered Twigs Distress Ink Pad by Ranger®
May Arts® Ribbon and Twine
Celebrate It™ Occasions™ White Paper Flowers
10 mm White Rose Mulberry Flowers by Pizzazz Aplenty™
4 mm Light Coffee Flatback Pearls by Pizzazz Aplenty™

Here's a list of my teammates that are playing along today:

Thanks so much for stopping by to have a look.  I hope you've spotted some new embossing techniques you're wanting to try out!  It's always fun to learn something new and this book has a ton of great information, you're going to love it!  Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you again next week.
