Final Swap...For Now!

I know that I promised that I would post this yesterday but the day was crazy. I was on the go from 7am to 8pm and then I still had to make supper. Posting here wasn't even on my mind until I went to bed. Then I realized that I didn't get over here. But I'm here now and ready to show you my cute little witch!

This is my final swap for now. (I say for now because more than likely I will be signing up for another swap soon!) I made this background by using a technique called Double Embossed. I started by rubbing the embossing buddy over a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I then inked up my Spider Web embossing folder with VersaMark ink. I inked it by directly applying the ink pad to the side of the folder that has the Stampin' Up! logo on it. Place the cardstock into the folder and run it through the Big Shot. Remove the cardstock and sprinkle it with a 50/50 mixture of black embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds. Using your heat tool to emboss the mixture.

Stamps: Greeting Card Kids
Ink: Black Stazon, VersaMark
Cardstock: Lucky Limade, Peach Parfait, Whisper White
Accessories: Lucky Limade, Peach Parfait, Basic Black, Blush Blossom, Sahara Sand markers, Black embossing powder, Dazzling Diamonds, Peach Parfait ribbon, Spider Web embossing folder, 1 3/4" circle punch, 2 3/8" scallop circle punch, Heat tool, dimensionals, embossing buddy

This is sooo sparkly in person! I like all the swaps I created but I think this one might be my favorite. It took me out of my comfort zone and still turned out fabulous!

Happy Stampin'!

I am so happy to have this one in real life! It is amazing!! Thanks for explaining how you did the embossing -- I thought maybe it was Black Craft Ink with Iridescent Ice.

I love this! Definitely a wow! Now I'm going to have to try this technique on this folder. And that little witch is adorable!
