Embossing Through Stencils

Day Two of Creative Chemistry 102, and I’m having a ball!  Learning sooooo much!

This sample is embossing through stencils, although if you look closely, you’ll see it’s not a stencil at all, rather the ‘holes’ left from sequins when they’re made!

I love the effect you get from this technique, and know I will be doing again. (Click on the image for a close-up and you’ll see some of the circles are mottled with brown and peacock feathers!)

Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!

  1. Thanks PMStamper! It’s years since I’ve used stencils, and couldn’t find them, so I improvised.

    Of course I found them AFTER I’d done this!

    (Great class, isn’t it??!!)

  2. I’m another class member. I love what you did, here. AND the improvised stencil. I do the same thing with my electronic cutter left-overs. Wow, there is a great stencil, I would say, and save it for another day…LOL
    Plus, I have a question? What exactly is embossed on this tag? I know dry embossing with EF’s, and wet embossing with Versamark, and embossing powders, but……..???
    Thanks, in advance, I KNOW you always answer questions, here.
    I love your stenciled tag. Are you planning to stamp on it, and attach it to a card? Just wondering. Full of questions, today, it seems. LOL Great job!!

  3. Hi Anna, the embossed part is the Peacock Feathers colour. It’s embossed with clear embossing powder – through the stencil.

    You’ll see and understand once you watch the video.

    The techniques I did on tags will stay as sample tags, on a ring, so I can refer back to them.

    The ones I did on cards will go off to one of the charities I donate to. Most likely I’ll go and do those techniques again, on tags this time.

    (I love the labels Tim supplied for the back of our tags – makes for great reference!)
