Burned Embossing with Sweet Stamps

Hello and a Happy Tuesday!!
It's a new week with a new challenge technique at Sweet Stamps Challenge blog!
This week the team was challenged to use a technique called
Burned Embossing
 
 
Each week Sweet Stamps has a new challenge and although you are not required to use a Sweet Stamp, if you have some we would love for you to use them and you will receive a second entry into our draw.


Our prize each week to one lucky winner is a $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet Stamp Store for use on any of our wonderful rubber stamps


 
For my card began by using two dies to create a frame from a piece of
light weight cardboard (recycled from the back of a paper pack) then I inked
it up good with embossing ink and then coated it with black embossing powder, using my heat gun heated the embossing powder until it was melted, I repeated this process three times until I had the frame looking the way I wanted with the burned embossed effect.
I then stamped the beautiful stamp "In Her Easter Bonnet Silhouette 6005" with embossing ink and embossed her with Black fine EP, then cutting with the same smaller die as frame and adhere her to the back of my frame.
 
After adding my ribbon, lace and flowers I then finished my card by embossing
Fancy Scallop Edge Border DUO 4005 onto the top portion of my card as an embellishment.
Sentiment is Happy Birthday Antique Small 9027 distressing the edges with  Shades dye ink in ARGOS Shades™ Dye Ink Pad
