Stampendous September Embossing Challenge!!

Happy Fall!!!  

Today I want to share a card I created by embossing on acetate.

I started by cutting my card base to 5.5 x 4.25 (A2 card) and a rectangle from the center with a die cut.  I cut a piece of acetate, just a bit bigger than the rectangle from the card base.  

On my craft mat, I placed a few drops of Color Solutions Alcohol Ink by Dreamweaver Stencils on my craft mat and laid my acetate in the ink and swirled it around.  The colors of ink I used were Lemoncello, Cosmo Pink, Pearl White, Mojito Green and Color Solutions Cleaner/Thinner.   I added more color where needed.  Once satisfied, I stamped the new Stampendous Follow Art stamp (CRH289) onto the (non-inked side) acetate with Versamark Watermark Ink, sprinkled Aged Black Embossing Enamel over the image and applied heat.  The enamel melted into a black image with shimmery gold flecks.

I rotated direction and ink colors around the border with the Stampendous Cling Scrolled Medallion (CRV268).

I would love if you played along.  Use the link tool at the bottom of this post to link your embossed creation to the Stampendous Challenge.

Wendy, this is great! I love the colorful medallions along the edge. Your step-by-step directions are always useful. Thanks.

So pretty, Wendy. I love how you've made the medallion go in different directions and different colors. Such a simple background/frame, yet so clever! Thanks for playing with us this week!!
