Here are a couple of tags showing some variations of layered embossing.
The fall tag is what I demo'd for the make n take at Scrappin' Great Deals last Saturday. Stamped Tim Holtz script with clear embossing ink, sprinkle with tea dye distress powder, heat emboss, stamped leaves in pine needle distress ink, sprinkle with peeled paint distress powder, heat emboss, stamped the pumpkin in spice marmalade distress ink, sprinkle with tea dye distress powder, heat emboss; then sponge on layers of distress ink, and stamp the sentiment in ColorBox black ink. Lots of steps but I love the result!!
This next tag was my second choice:
I used a cuttlebug embossing folder first for the spider web, sponged some black soot distress ink on top, stamped the Tim Holtz witch hazel script with red ink, then clear embossing powder, stamped the crow with a glue pad and sprinkled on some fine black glitter; then sponged around the tag with various colours of distress ink.
