Steampunk Owls

Hello, Alicia on the blog today. I recently made a new purchase from the Dies R Us store and I envisioned this card before I even received the dies in the mail!  I was so excited to put all the gears and border together with the perfect gear paper.  



Part of my vision was to emboss my die cuts to give them a shiny coating.  I first die cut, then tapped on embossing ink and dipped in embossing powder before heating it to a perfect elevated shine.


I used my new Die Versions Tool set again to hold my die cuts steady while I heated the embossing powder.



Here's a close up of the layers of Memory Box Mini GearsCheery Lynn Owls with Gears  and brads.
