Retake on Thinking Inking Week Two - embossing Take Two

Rubber Stamp : Stampin Up Print Pattern (harlequin), Deadbeat Designs (Life ...)
Distress Embossing Powder : Tattered Rose
Distress Inks : Pumice Stone, Victorian Velvet, Worn lipstick, Old Paper
Paper : Tim Holtz Paper Stash Lost and Found (pig card was cut from a sheet in this pad)

I continued to play with embossing this week. I sponged with Pumice Stone Distress ink. Stamped SU Printed Pattern (Harlequin) with Victorian Velvet Distress ink and Embossed with Tattered Rose Distress embossing powder. I stamped Life is Good with Pumice Stone twice to help it show up a little better, and embossed with clear EP. The edges were inked direct to paper with Worn Lipstick to brighten it up a little. The embellishment was cut from Tim Holtz' Paper Stash, Lost and Found pad. I put 3 coats of UTEE on it, then stuck it in the freezer for a few minutes and crackled it. I rubbed it with Old Paper distress ink and adhered with redline tape. Thanks for looking!

Whew!  I think I'm finally just about caught up posting my latest stamping projects.

Ohh I love the softness of this.
I did watch all the thinking inking tutorials when they came out last year. And played a bit then. Maybe I should start again. Looks like you are having a blast with it.

I loved watching those Thinking Inking videos. Actually I have been thinking lately of re watching them.
Your tag is so fun with that little piggy on there.
I think I missed the one about putting the uttee in the freezer. Great idea.
