Thanks a bunch!

I perused through my book of Lasting Impressions templates the other day and found cute fall themed templates that have never been used! With this card I used both a normal dry embossing technique and a reverse technique. The reverse technique is done by putting the paper you are embossing face up on the template. This reverses the line from being raised to indented. The pumpkins on this one were done with this technique. When I scuffed them (sand paper) I go over the indented areas just as you normally would and it creates a negative, if you will, appearance. The ground was done by tearing paper and sponging it with Close to Cocoa ink.

The recipe:
  • SU Buckaroo Blue, M Mustard, C Caramel CS
  • LI Cinnamon, pumpkin and fudge CS
  • LI Buttons
  • SU Linen thread
  • LI scuffers
  • SU Buckaroo Blue, and Close to Cocoa inks
  • SU retired Best of Cluck and Canvas bkgd stamps
  • Lasting Impressions brass templates
  • raffia
  • SU dimensionals
