I incorporated a few techniqes which employ embossing.
Embossing Instructions:
The background layer the girl is on, consists of Gesso applied to cardstock which was dried and heat set.
The second step is the painting of mediums:
I dabbed using an applicator onto the gesso piece with Ranger Alcohol inks and Rubbing Alcohol,
In the final step of painting, I included some light applications of Tim Holtz Distress Stains. Heat set and dry
For the Dry Embossing application, I ran this piece through my Sizzix Big Shot Machine to create an impression using Sizzix Tim Holtz Texture Fades " Collage and Notebook folder ".
For the last step incorporating 'wet embossing',  I applied  Green Pigment Ink brayering lightly overtop of the dry embossed piece and embossed the wet portion with clear embossing powder. Dried and set with a heat gun.

SPELLBINDERS 3D M-BOSSIBILITIES CELTIC KNOT


Hello Connie Paxman here, to share with you my second Metal Art Creation; using the Spellbinders 3D M-Bossiblities " Celtic Knot" embossing folder.





I applied Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks to Pewter Medium Weight Art Emboss Metal before embossing with Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine. The metal peice was lightly sanded and then mounted on Cardstock and a Canvas. I would like to mention, the heavier metal is suitable for wall art; whereas another innovative source that would be lighter and more applicable to cardmaking, is Spellbinder Foil.
Each peice of Spellbinder Foil is 5 x 7" and is double sided, with the featured metallic color on one side and silver on the reverse side. Included in this package of twelve sheets is two of each color: Dark Blue, Dark Orange, Dark Red, Dark Turquoise, Dark Green, Purple.
Be sure to stop by Scrapbooking Fanatics online craft store;  and check out their line of Spellbinders 3D M-Bossiblities folder, Cardmaking and other Crafty supplies.
