Simon Says: Emboss It!


 Hello Monday, my friends! And welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Food and Drink  Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

It's been wonderful having the very talented Ann Chiang with us this month! I've enjoyed each of your wonderful makes, Ann, and look forward to seeing you again. 

This week the challenge is: EMBOSS IT!

I focused on dry embossing and embossing glaze on my steampunk style tag this week.


keep the factory sunning... 

I started with a little spritz of water on the tag before I ran it through the Big Shot to get this lovely embossing.  

Next, I blended Simon's Pawsitively Saturated Ocean ink over the embossed tag. 

I swiped clear ink over the raised surface and added the new Scorched Timber glaze. I do love the combination of blue and brown here, and the glaze really brings out the gear design.

Next step was layering on cogs gears and a dial. 

A factory tag works with the theme... 

Details showing the beautiful textures... oh, and I added in some microbeads too.

And, of course, a gentleman to complete the tag. Maybe he is the dial factory owner? An investor? There's a story in here

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
