Emboss Resist!

The Lily Pad Blog has a new challenge using one of my favourite techniques "Emboss Resist" so I had to have a play!  I made up a few of these circles in different colours but this Autumnal one was so pretty I had to use it first.  As you can see I have used up lots of scraps of text paper in the background and some Hero Arts stamps on the main image.  CG107 Old Letter and CL383 Antique Engravings. 

Hope you are having a fun weekend.
