InchybyInch Challenge Set by Frankie



This challenge is a 'Technique First' for me and has been set over at InchybyInch by their Guest Designer this week, who happens to be my good friend Frankie. Frankie's challenge was to create Inchies using Triple Embossing combined with Stamping.

I am pleased with the end result and will certainly be doing more of this technique. I started with an 1" square of mountboard from my craft stash, my Versamark pad was used to enable the UTEE to stick before heating with my heat gun, this was repeated 3 times before stamping onto the hot tile with stamps from the Daisy Butterfly Set from Graphicus. I then ran my Versamark pad over the top before brushing Cosmic Shimmers over them. The background which the Inchies are on, is a piece of Navy card which I sprayed with Cosmic Shimmers and a little water. #

Thanks to Frankie for setting this challenge and for her tutorial as 'How to' get the effect.
