TSC21: Fabulous Faux - Using Stamps From Any Company

Can you believe it's time for another Stampsmith Challenge already!?  This week, Karen challenges us to create a project that includes a faux technique. Now this certainly leaves a lot of choice - as stampers, we're always creating something that imitates something else!

by Anne Hadara
I went hunting for a new technique to try and I found a lovely one on Splitcoaststampers called Faux Pressed Flowers.  I took Anne Hadara's idea and pressed my flowers in a Cuttlebug dry embossing folder.  When I get a little more brave, I am going to try this again embossing the entire card front like Anne did and see how it turns out!

    This technique is one I've never, ever heard of. Pity I don't own a Cuttlebug.
    Wonderfully inspiring.
