Through The Purple Haze Challenges #29

Good afternoon, I'm here ( a little late, thanks to vanishing posts) with a new challenge from
Through The Purple  Haze Challenges
This week our theme is Embossing, be it dry embossing or heat embossing, if it has embossing on it then we want to see it :)
Our sponsor this week is My Mums Craft Shop & you could win £10 to spend in the shop.

So, onto my make.
I decided to use both dry & heat embossing on my DL card. I first scored some brick work onto some coredinations using my hougie board. I then randomly tore it to a size that fit & then sanded it back. 

I die cut 2 tags. Inked 1 ran it through an embossing folder, I then inked over the design. On my 2nd tag I stamped onto it using versamark & then foiled it, I sanded some of it back to give an aged look. I die cut some rolled roses as well as some flourishes & corners, I embossed these too. I finished off with some flat back pearls. 

My sentiment panel was die cut from the same coredinations, embossed & sanded. I added some peel offs. 

A little close up of my tags.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I'm looking forward to seeing all of your embossed projects.
