Embossing Challenge at CCM

The challenge at Crafty Cardmaker's for two weeks is to create a project using embossing. You can use any form of embossing. Be sure to pop over to see the varied and fabulous samples by the team. We are being sponsored this week by the marvellous Joanne Sheen so definetly worth you giving it a try.
I love embossing, for any and all of the techniques can produce wonderful instant results. For this challenge I decided to make a deeply embossed pendant. I started with a 2" sq piece of mountboard, which I coloured all over, sides included with a black marker pen. I then heated 3 layers of UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel).
While the last layer was still hot and molten, I stamped onto it, with a rubber stamp I had previously covered in Versamark, to prevent it sticking. When it cooled, I removed the stamp, patted on more Versamark, then added two colours of mica powder using a small brush. I then patted it onto a wet wipe to add the moisture for the powders to be set. I finally added the jewelrey to complete the pendant. Full details of how I made this can be found on my tutorial blog.
