Simon Says Stamp Designer Spotlight - Week 2

Hello Friends

It is time for my second Designer Spotlight project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  I really enjoyed creating this project!
 The challenge this week is 'Heat Embossing'. 

I created a large tag with lots of heat embossed elements.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Prize Ribbon, smooshed onto my craft mat and then transferred this onto Distress Watercolour Cardstock and left this to dry naturally.   Next I took Tim's beautiful Faded Type stamp set, and stamped in Distress Ink in Prize Ribbon before adding Distress Embossing Glaze, also in Prize Ribbon and then heat embossed it.  You can't really see it in the photo but it has a delicate embossed sheen to it.

The tag reinforcer was coloured with Distress Ink in Prize Ribbon.
The bulls eye from the Inquisitive stamp set was stamped with Crackling Campfire Distress Oxide Ink and then coated with Distress Embossing Glaze in Crackling Campfire before heat embossing it.  I created three, cut them out and mounted all three onto the tag, lifting the centre one up with sticky pads to give some dimension.

The man was stamped and embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder in black.  He was coloured with watercolour pencils, fussy cut and then mounted onto the centre bulls eye.
At the bottom of the tag I stamped the Faded Type in the same way as the top of the tag.  I added a Quote Chip along with an Idea-ology arrow adornment, which I coated with Distress Embossing Glaze in Crackling Campfire.  You can see the sheen of the embossed elements below.
To finish off the tag I edged it with Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide.
We hope you will join in the challenge this week, there is a £25 Gift Voucher on offer for one lucky winner!

I am totally in love with the Prize Ribbon colour, it is such a beautiful, deep and rich blue and the Inquisitive stamp set is a definite favourite, I can see me using this combination for lots of birthday cards.  A list of the products I used can be found at the foot of this post.

As always, thanks so much for taking the time to visit, I truly appreciate it.

Crafty Hugs, Anne xxx
