The challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays this week is Flowers and Anything Goes at Robyn's Fetish. I had a great time this weekend playing with a new toy: Tim Holtz's Embossing Diffusers. For years I have seen do-it-yourself versions of this technique that leaves an area unembossed but now Tim has made it easy for us. Here is a video on how these work. I started with an embossing folder from Sizzix and using the oval diffuser, left the center unembossed. I attached a beautiful layered flower sticker from Reddy Creative Cards that I added glitter and gold microbeads to. Then I finished with liquid pearls to each intersection of the embossing.
Here is a closer look and the inside view:
