This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Embossing Technique (heat or dry) (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I admit that I have done wet embossing, and actually really like the effect, but it's just so messy and extremely prone to flufifng it up with straying embossing powder.  Plus I love the appearance of the dry embossing, so that's what I've chosen.

My: favourite has to be Heat embossing at the moment
Why? : I love that it gives me the lines I need for this water colour technique. 


If I want a card in a hurry dry embossing is the way to go for me, quick and love how embossing folders and especially how I can use my dies as embossed images on a card.


I chose heat embossing, because I just love how it looks like on a card and also because I haven't used it for quite a long time. Well, I know now why I don't use it as much, because it's really difficult to get a good result ...


My favourite has to be dry embossing. It amazes me that by using a folded piece of plastic  you can turn a boring piece of card into something tactile and add interest to a card in seconds.


**coming soon**


My favourite is heat embossing. I know it's a bit messy but I like the result.
I love the 
sharp and clear lines. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Embossing Technique (heat or dry) (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
