Turn up the Heat

Hi all,  we could certainly  do with some heat here in the UK  its  flipping freezing but in the hopes it will warm you up  ;) I would like to see you use 
Heat Embossing 
on your projects for this weeks challenge at Make My Monday 
here's mine
Clearly besotted: Leafy Accents stamps and die. Embossed with green EP
La Blanche: Bloom. stamped with Vintage sepia, once onto cartridge paper and once onto acetate, embossed with clear EP, coloured and cut out 
Crafty Individuals: The little bee was a generous freebie
Hobby Craft sentiment
Derwent Inktense water colour pencils.
Clear and green Embossing Powder
Versafine Vintage Sepia. for the bloom, sentiment and bee
Viva Pearl Pen: copper. flower centre
I made a bit of a mess usingg the Pearl pen but I quite liked it so didn't feel the need to do all again! well the acetate bit ... which can be tricky  cos it's difficult to stop the stamp from sliding around.... managed in one take.. whew!  although not easy to See in this photograph I coloured both cartridge paper and acetate

Both layers of card and acetate can more easily be seen in this photo.

As usual we at MMM look forward to seeing your creations and as usual you will astound us with embossing variations.
 We are delighted to have three new DT members 
 Jaybee, Rosie and Laura 
  pop across to MMM to see all the DT's wonderful inspiration.
 have a good day, take care.

Yes, winter's returned here too but I love the spring feel of your gorgeous card Sue. The acetate layering is really effective on your flower. Vicky x
