Just Add Ink #419...Add a Twist!

Good morning everyone!

It's time for another fun challenge over at Just Add Ink and this week the lovely Kelly has challenged us to use a product in a way it was otherwise intended.
I decided to give my embossing mats a whirl and emboss the large net framelit from the Sea of Textures set on my project instead of using it to diecut as it was originally intended.

It took me awhile to get the pressure right, as every Big Shot roller tension is slightly different...I got there in the end, although this example is far from perfect, it gives you an idea and makes your framelits way more versatile.

My colours for this one are Soft Suede-Tranquil Tide & Night of Navy (although the navy was a piece of sparkly cardstock l had in my stash).

Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog and check out fab, fun twists the rest of the design team have used.

Thanks for stopping by!
All supplies used are Stampin Up! unless noted.(non su navy panel & silver sequins)

  3. Oh I love this Nikki. I really need to get my embossing mats out of the packet and give them a whirl too!

  4. Wow, what a cool effect! I need to get my Embossing Mats out and have more of a play.
