I loved the idea, and gave it a shot using an embossing folder I had had sitting around for months and never used. I brayered the embossed piece with white pigment ink, as in the video, then with a Kaleidacolour Autumn Leaves pad. This pad is amazing - it was one of the first ink pads I ever bought when I started stamping about 15 years ago. It's been very heavily used and is still going strong. Instead of chalks, I highlighted some areas with mica powders.
The maple leaf is stamped in green then heat embossed with a dark green ultra thick embossing powder in three layers, with more mica powders sprinkled over before heating the final layer. Skeleton leaves that have been in my stash for so long they were in fashion when I bought them and some ribbon and paper leaves from my bits box complete the design.
As Simon and Garfunkel sang.....
"And the leaves that are green
Turn to brown."
Two different kinds of embossing means I'm playing along with the current Oldie But Goodie challenge which is Embossing.
And being inspired by the song I quoted, I'm joining in at OLLCB where the challenge is Inspired by a song.
Finally, since the embossing and brayering technique is completely new to me, I'm making my second entry to the current Something New challenge at Craft-room
