Embossing Sin City Stamps, Walnut Hollow Wood, DecoArt Media


Using a fabulous ornate Walnut Hollow Chippendale 8x10 piece of wood - the project began. 

DecoArt Media Crackle Paste was spread from top to bottom.  The Sin City Stamps in the photo were pushed into the crackle paste to form the flower pattern. With a pointed stick I drew in the fence and some earthy lines. 


After dry - spray with DecoArt Media Yellow Shimmer Mister. 


Have fun embossing!!

The sky and the flowers were embossed. 



With the shimmering embossed flowers in the background, out came the flower stamp again.  This time it was coated with DecoArt Media Gesso and stamped right on top the other flowers.

It's hard to see the shimmer of the embossing powders but it looks so pretty in person!


More crackle and embossing shimmer in the sky!
