Monochrome Silver


I am currently visiting (sick) family - Grandma to the rescue, as we do!

This was made recently for a wedding anniversary, for a couple who are pretty 'no fuss' people

The base stamp is from Hero Arts - Fine Woven Fabric - a stamp that I have had 'forever' and never used to its potential. I embossed it using detail silver embossing powder.

Washi tape was layered over that, before the next details were added.

The two small hearts were stamped so they overlapped, embossed, fussy cut, and mounted on foam dots.

The sentiment was embossed, the tag trimmed and the corners rounded, then the edges were also embossed, again mounted on foam dots.

This image shows the wonderful sheen of the silver embossing.
