Wedding Wheels keep Moving


It's Saturday and a new challenge at Less is More.  This weeks theme is things that move.  Well my couple, just married, are certainly on the move!

When I looked at my stamp I wondered how it would look if Mrs above, was embossed in white.  This fits neatly into CAS-ual Fridays challenge which is all about embossing so that made my mind up to give it a try.

I stamped Wedding Wheels in Basic Black and the using my Versamark Pen I highlighted the areas that I wanted the embossing powder to stick.  I then covered it in White embossing powder and heat set.  I repeated the process to add another layer of white.  This was mounted onto a panel of Basic Black with some 1/8" taffeta ribbon tied around.  A couple of tags from the Tiny Tag set and punched out with the Jewellery Tag Punch added my little sentiment.

I'm rather pleased with the result although it did take four goes!   Hope you all have a lovely weekend. x
