Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 2 - Embossing through Stencils

Embossing through Stencils
This tag turned out really cool even before I put the stamped images on it.  I first embossed the hat in copper on the blue kraft core paper, but it just didn't look right after I had it cut out.  So I stamped and embossed with Zing Vanilla on the blue.  That was better but a little too light.  I went over it with a brown blending foam and distressed it a little.  Then I needed a little something to put my sentiment on.  Might as well use the trash... the flip sid of the hat I didn't like worked like a charm!

The pictures just don't do this technique justice.  I below are a couple of close ups where you can see the clear distress powder over the distress ink through the stencils.
