Welcome to another week!
A couple of month's back fellow SU! Demonstrator Amanda Burditt posted a card with a technique she called Frosted Scattered Embossing. The idea intrigued me but I wondered if I could somehow put a spin on it. This embossed dress is what I came up with!
The simplicity of the technique is the best part! Choose an embossing folder; in this case I chose Petals-a-Plenty. You'll notice inside your folder that there is a raised portion of the pattern and an indented side - we'll be using the indented side of the folder. Lay a piece of vellum paper over the indented side of the folder, grab a stylus tool, and begin gently rubbing within the indents of the flowers in which you'd like to transfer to the vellum. By using the folder in this manner your able to pick and choose the placement and frequency of the flowers! So how did I do the dress you ask?
Choose one of the dresses from the Dress Up Framelits and run it through the Big Shot from a scrap piece of cardstock. Set the cut out dress aside for another project - we'll be using the negative portion of the dress cut out as a stencil. Lay your piece of vellum inside the embossing folder as you would with the basic technique, then layer the stencil portion of the dress over top of the vellum. Begin gently transferring the flowers with a stylus tool only transferring the images within the dress stencil. Remove stencil and viola! a perfectly embossed dress!
