CropStop Friday Embossing - July 16th

It's Friday and time to show you my CropStop embossing project for the week. I simply love the new Tim Holtz Fades. They make a very deep impression, which means you can ink them up and give them such a nice distressed look! I am all about inking junk up!

I used the Patchwork Fade today, and it comes as a set of two (Bingo and Patchwork). I embossed Basic Grey paper, then added some distress ink to bring out the pattern. Is that a great look, or what?!

The other background paper is October Afternoon, which is one of my favorite paper companies. I used some Maya Road pins (yes, I am ADDICTED to pins!). I also found a Petaloo flower in my stash, and this yummy lace!

This project also matches the Practical Scrappers challenge for this week...embossing! Perfect for me!
