Anything and everything

The Stampotique Designers Challenge asks for twinchies, so I dug out some frames suitable for framing 2x2 inch images. I'm not posting for that yet, since I didn't make a set of twinchies, just one... I decided to go for the Crafty Individuals July challenge (Face value) and make a portrait of an Alice Palace doggy.

The dog was coloured with Distress markers and spritzed with water before stamping. Sometimes it happens that a new technique seems to pop up on several places at the same time. For me it happened to be triple embossing, which I ran into so many times last week, that I had to check it on youtube and try it out on the frame. I cut the "anything and everything" stamp to pieces, seperating the text, speach bubble, dog and food. I placed the pieces (along with a couple of other Alice Palace stamps) on top of the frame and picked them up with my TacknPeel block so I could stamp them in the soft embossing all at once.

The embossing was messy business, I had to wipe up several times... and much deeper than I expected, love the chunky look of this! I can say it looked really cool before the stamping too, just a thick gold.... I mounted everything on an inky red background and a gold card base from my destash pile. Certainly to be tried again!
