Hello and Welcome to this weeks Broke Stampers Unite Challenge. This week is for techniques....so we chose Faux Embossing. I admit this is another one of those where I had to look the "How To" on. There are lots of YouTube videos to guide you in this technique. (thank goodness). I chose a base of Elegant Eggplant and did my faux embossing with Craft Whisper White Pad and Elegant Eggplant. So a quick run down with this......you stamp your image in the craft whisper white, let it dry real good....I used a fan LOL once it's dry you then line up your stamp inked with a bit of the same color as your cardstock...in this case the Elegant Eggplant, I used a stamp a majig to line up my stamp just to the left of my white image....just a smidge to the left, then stamped it. you then let that dry....when you are done your image should look as if you dry embossed it. Like it has a raised texture, when it really is just a flat image. (I freak my man out with that) LOL he thought it was a raised image. I then cut out some flowers using the botanicals thinlits and built the rest of the card. It sounds way more complicated than it is. Give it a try....look at videos, check it out....then when you're done share your creation with us on our Facebook Page.
