Rainbow Lady's Challenge #168 Lets Emboss it!

This week over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge we are being sponsored by Joanna Sheen, who as always has put up a fab prize for grabs! We would like you to show some embossing on your project this week, I chose to have a play with UTEE. I chose this frame as it has a nice wide, flat surface to emboss on to. I sanded and then painted it with acrylic paint. I then added two layers of my chosen colour of Cosmic Shimmer UTEE directly on to the frame with versamark ink. I had already melted a mixture of clear UTEE, gold and copper embossing powders and left them to set on a heat proof mat. I melted a section of the frame and added chunks of the pre heated embossing powder, melting it in to the frame as I worked around the edge. The finish is very organic and has a beautiful sheen to it. Hope you like, please pop on over to join in this weeks challenge via the link on my sidebar. Elizabeth x
