Diva Challenge #61

challenge61Brrr. It’s a freezing Wednesday and the challenge is a photo inspiration- I’ve gone a vague Valentine 5
I thought I might show you how easy it is to do embossing without a die-cutting machine. First I made a template that was supposed to be mittens but looked rather like Oven Gloves 😉 Cut them out after tracing onto the metal.

Next, lay them onto the embossing folder, close the folder and use a rolling pin with plenty of pressure!

And..ta-daah.. perfectly embossed metal with no equipment!

The stamps are all from WPlus9 -stamped in London Fog (Memento) and Pale Tomato (Hero Arts)To create the little heart I added glue to some Lawn Fawn twine and held it in the heart shape until it dries. I’ve added some Scarlet Red hearts with the Wondrous White mittens.
