Craft Stamper Take it Make it Challenge . . . Embossing Powder Resist

Happy Friday sweet friends, I can hardly believe that June has been and gone . . . life is speeding up for sure!
It`s the first Friday of the month, which means it`s time to share my project for
the technique for this month is . . .
 Technique: Heat emboss an image/design onto the project, then colour over the top with inks/watercolour paints. The embossing powder will resist the inks etc, and show through. This could form the focal point to your project, or be part of the background. Real stamping needs to be included as well (in case you doodled with an embossing pen for your resist rather than stamping!!)
 We have a fantastic prize for this challenge, so be sure and check out all the details on the main blog HERE
 Out to the shed I went to grab a few supplies!
