October Project Parade - Day Two

Welcome to Day Two of this month's Project Parade on the Verve blog.  Our parade this month focuses on embossing.  I can honestly say that I am not much of a technique person, but embossing (both heat and dry) is something that I immensely enjoy.  I decided to go ahead and make a sprinkle-ly mess and break out the embossing powder for this project.  I started with a Kraft base and stamped the long filigree image from the Artful Elegance set twice in VersaMark.  I then sprinkled bronze embossing powder and heat embossed.  I then created the other heat embossed pieces with the same bronze embossing powder on black paper.  I really like this color combo, as I think it would be perfect for many occasions including everyday cards, birthday, wedding and sympathy.

Here is a detail shot of the embossing...
