embossing powders on multiple surfaces...

happy weekend my friends!

here's a fun little shelf sitter I made a few weeks ago for the Collin's event in Florida...
I wanted to show that many different surfaces work great with embossing powders...

if it can take the heat, 
it CAN be embossed!

below you'll see that I've used them
 on tim's Sizzix pumpkin...
it's die cut cut from my clearly for art...
that allowed me to heat the pieces & then shape the pieces & make them more dimensional...

and

the small tattered floral flowers were cut from clearly for art blackout & embossed with 


that spider stamp inspired the remnant rub sentiment...
BRAVE is a state of mind...
I am NOT brave around real spiders...
I really HATE THEM...

did you notice the remnant rubs on 
that I added to the blossom bucket witches hat?
it's a fun way to customize ribbon...



not sure why the background paper looks so light on the next photo...
hmmm...
just ignore it please...

here's a closer look at the faux graniteware technique on the pumpkin & you can see the mini text added to the letterpress...

I LOVE the flourish stamp so much...


that's it for today...

I hope you can take some time to relax this weekend and...

make art!
wendy
ps...for those of you hunting looking for 
Glue N Seal...
the larger size jar that I use to refill the smaller...
using them together is the best value...

Your embossing powders give this piece such a vibrant feel. LOVE the pumpkin - it looks fabulous with the embossing powder and the remnant rubs! An the way you used the remnant rubs on the linen ribbon is amazing - must try that! Thanks for sharing. I'm always SO inspired when I come here!
