"A kitten is a rosebud in the garden of the animal kingdom."
Can you stand to see one more entry in the MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Layered Embossing challenge???? I couldn't let this challenge go by without adding some heat embossing to my layered dry embossing, right? :)
Again, I used scraps from my DCWV Solstice Stack and layered them on my background. I dry embossed the piece with my Darice Honeycomb folder and then brayered some Versamark over the top of it and heat embossed with gold. I repeated this step once to get better definition of the hexagons.
The stamp is one I found in a grab bag. The image appears to be taken from an old primer and the sentiment is difficult to read, so I will tell you what it says:
Charming, isn't it? I love old primers! I stamped it on some pulpy paper (inked edges with Distress Ink - Mustard Seed) and heat embossed it in gold. I placed it on a die-cut panel from Inspired by Stamping - Fancy Labels 3 dies that I had also heat-embossed in gold....at least the parts that were going to show! :) You can see the gleam in the photo below."Was a Hive -- in which honey-bees live, --
Bread and Honey I think very nice;
Then if you make haste, and your alphabet learn,
Perhaps you may get a good slice."
I layered up some Prima flowers with a sequin center for the upper left corner. For the lower right, I put glitter glue centers and added a tiny doily punched heart as a sort of little pocket for the flowers.
Do you see the speckles on the large yellow layer of the flower below? This flower originally had just a dark line of brown on the lower "seven o'clock" area. I thought it looked out of place by itself, so I took a coordinating marker and added more splashes of stain. I like it much better this way. :)
So that wraps up my 4 entries for the MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Layered Embossing challenge. Hope you have enjoyed seeing them. I love all your comments, so please keep them coming!! :) Have a lovely mid-week.
