Emboss your Photograph

Are you all wondering am I out of my mind? Has Irene gone crazy?! Well, let's just say I've just gone a little overboard with my experiments. I know most of you will be a little nervous to do this but just think of it this way. If the photograph is ruined, you can print or develop it again. But if you never dare to try this technique, you will never know how it will look like and how it will enhance your project.

In this technique, simply put part of your photograph under an embossing folder and run it through an embossing tool. I've used cuttlebug to emboss my photograph above and later inked it with some distress ink to create a distressed embossing look on the photograph. Check back tomorrow to take a look at the complete project.
