Heat Ebossing

I finally tried Heat Embossing.... it was actually Very Simple...Except i burnt my finger, a piece of scrap paper, and well that table cloth is plastic coated, i sort of shrunk it in places... but it was worth the outcome!

This is the paper before I did anything with it!

I used a simple little snowflake stamp, and clear embosing ink.. along with a sparkly white embossing powder. This is the after picture!

And finally this picture shows the papers side by side. I like the way it turned ou!

This is the project I used it for... just some Deco Squares for a swap!
