Heat Embossing for Back to Basics and Beyond!

Hello Crafting Friends, start of another week having the last one whizz past and for me not only a week, but a year as it's my Birthday week, Yeh!! Why am I yehing,  I'll be 65, and over the last few days have felt 75 lol.  Not to worry, nothing really planned, but doing no housework!!!.

Thank you all so much for the comments on my CCC cards. You are all so kind, even although the photos were hopeless.

So today I'm here with my DT make for Back to Basics and Beyond Challenge. The Challenge set this time is Heat Embossing;
All the stamps used are by Chocolate Baroque, and the pretty lady with the daisy dress has been embossed in white EP and I've coloured the daisies with Prisma Colour Pencils. I heat embossed a golden frame around the image,  keeping the daisy colours. I found lovely white daisies in my flower stash so added them. This image is one of my favourite CB stamps. I didn't add any other embellishments, didn't think it needed it.

BBB is a new Challenge Blog and it's all about techniques, some new to those starting outon their crafting journey, and refreshing skills of more seasoned crafters. Please visit the blog and think about entering the challenge. You can find it here
Look out for the other DT creations, fabulous work.

I hope you are well and still enjoying this good weather. I'll be back soon, take care

The lovely CB stamp looks glorious in white on black Kate, the contrast works beautifully. A dodgy month for 'those' Birthdays then, mine in a couple of weeks as well, but decided I'm 39 and holding, but as you say not so convinced some mornings.
