This week's Penny Black Reader Challenge is "Wet Embossing." This is the first time I have come across the term but I believe it is exactly the same as Heat Embossing. My colour inspiration was taken from the April Penny Black @ Allsorts Challenge of "Black & White plus One."
I used the wet embossing technique to create a pearlised tone on tone background using the same stamp as for my focal image which I have paper pieced with an assortment of yellow cardstock.
Stamp Penny black 4104K Christmas Star.
Inks Memento Tuxedo Black (image); VersaMark watermark stamp pad with Stampendous White Pearls Embossing Powder (background); Black Soot & Mustard Seed Distress Inks (inking some cardstock edges).
Colouring Letraset Fine Line Drawing Pen & Uni-ball Eye Needle Point Black Pen; Stickles Glitter Glue (Black Diamond).
Cardstock An assortment of blacks, whites & yellows in various textures & finishes from stash.
Punches Woodware (corner rounder & butterfly), EK Success (Fancy Photo Corner).
The yellow gems & the white pearl are from stash.
