Well here is my second effort at the LIM - OLC Embossing challenge

Now again, not entirely happy but this time it's because the embossing was tricky! For some reason, I just couldn't seem to get enough ink onto the stamp so that when I stamped it, the embossing powder didn't stick! Anyway, 3rd time lucky and it worked for the most part! I embossed it with Meltdust silver, and actually, as it has missed areas, it has given it the vintage look that suits it! I finished with some brilliant brads I found in Preston and I've been dying to use them! Oh and the stamp is Andy Skinner - Viva Las Vegas.
I am also entering this into Ladybug - Black, White & one other colour challenge
Right, off for a shower to wash the dye off my hair and the ink off my hands!

  2. This would be a fab guy card - smashing

    Perhaps your ink pad is drying out and that's why your EP didn't stick . . . . just a thought.

  22. I think it looks fantastic, can't tell at all if you didn't have enough ink though. I was worried about that too having to emboss such a huge area so I re-inked my versapad each time to make sure I got loads on!
