It's Try Me Tuesday with My Creative Time and we're trying a fun technique today that was new to me: faux embossing! To start off, I made a 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" black card base and then added a patterned layer using a little sneak from our upcoming release and My Mind's Eye Wicked 6x6 stack. Then I made a tag using paper from this same stack and the Tag Dies. To get the little stitched circle on the tag, I used the one that comes with the Scallop Stitched Envelope Die, and then topped it with a brad from My Mind's Eye Mischievous collection.
Here's where the fun technique comes in. I cut a circle with Papertrey Ink ripe avocado cardstock, using a die from Bunches of Fun Circles. Then, following the technique I learned in this video, I stamped this cute witch image from Fright Night with white ink. After it dried, I stamped it again, a little offset, with ripe avocado ink. I adhered this circle onto a larger circle made of vellum and then attached the whole thing to my card with dimensional adhesive.
Lastly, I added a spooky sentiment, also from Fright Night.
