A Late Twist

     I have only a few hours before the challenge closes at The Technique Twist so here is my entry.
    The challenge is to make a Faux Wax Seal with embossing powder, I have seen this referred to before as Triple Embossing. It's where you use Ultra Thick embossing powder or three layers of fine to make a pool of colour and then stamp into it while its still warm.
    I made the picture using this months challenge at Technique Time Tuesday called Smakin' Acetate. The background colours came out well, but when I stamped my picture I missed a bit in the middle. Not wanting to throw it away I used the Faux Seal over the missing bit and stamped it with a butterfly.
    Some of the previous embossing didn't like being heated up again but it all calmed down in the end, so something came out of an original 'happy accident' after all.
    I mounted the picture at an angle as I'm trying to get away from using straight lines all the time, after all nature is not always uniform.
