Cuttlebug Challenge #8

The challenge this week is to crayon resist on your embossing
This involves rubbing crayon over your embossed image then I heated it with a heat gun then used alcohol ink over the top. it gives a lovely shiny meatallic look effect and I was amazed at the colours that came up. Full instructions of how to do this are provided through a link on the cuttlebug site
Go on give it a try this week
