Week 413 - Embossing

Good morning and welcome to Allsorts, Brenda here with this weeks challenge, the winners from last week are in the post below so make sure you check it out.

This weeks theme is........................

********Embossing********

It can be dry embossing using an embossing folder or embossing tool, heat embossing or even UTEE, it's up to you entirely, all we ask is that there is some form of embossing clearly visible on your artwork.

We have two prizes on offer this week from Sizzix, a set of embossing folders and a flower die set.



Sizzix, there's no bigger or better place for craft materials, custom dies and machines that can die-cut, emboss and texturize many materials, including cardstock, paper, construction paper, fabric, faux fur, felt and foil plus much more.

As always the Design Team have been busy and have plenty of inspiration to share.........................
